Kristin commented on the start of the world tour saying, "I am really happy to say that our very first KB4girls event turned out to be a great success! The girls were so motivated and eager to learn new things that it was a real joy to teach them on and off the water. The vibe was just great and even during the periods when the wind was not blowing there was plenty going on and it was great to see how the group was bonding together during the event!"
Friday saw the girls enjoy a free-ride session with everyone on the water in light, but steady winds until 6 pm. They began learning their first new tricks and celebrated a successful first day with a BBQ at Turner Caravan Park. Saturday saw a detailed demonstration where the girls stood in knee-deep water as Boese demonstrated various trick progressions before them as co-trainer Fiona Wedenig explained the technique of each move shown. Challenging gusty conditions prevailed in the afternoon and although it wasn't suitable for the less experienced riders, they were happy to observe and learn from the more experienced. Sunday saw intensive technique training through midday and a three hour kite session in the afternoon to give the perfect ending to the weekend.
Participant Elisha Caulfield said: "It was really great to see Kristin doing all of the tricks that I've never seen before. It was broken down in such a simple way that it suddenly all seemed achievable!
