Kristin Boese Launches KB4girls

Eight time world kiteboarding champion and sports model Kristin Boese is launching her first world-wide KB4girls kite-boarding tour and is looking to severely etch her mark in the rapidly growing sport of kitesurfing.
Boese is reaching out to girls around the world so that they can sharpen their skills and learn some new riding tricks. Her passion for the sport has led her to organise and run a total of 16 girls clinics around the world in the past 7 years, neither for profit or promotion and even using her own funding to make things happen. The popularity and interest has caught fire and now there is a demand to take the clinics to the next level. No surprise then that this year Kiteboarding magazine named her one of the ten most influential athletes in the sport.
Boese says, 'I want to give female kiteboarders of all ages and levels from around the world the opportunity to come together, have fun, learn some new tricks and meet some other girls with the same interest.' She goes on to say, 'Like most other sports, kiteboarding is pretty male dominated and from my own experience I know how tough and intimidating this can be for female kiteboarders. It can make all the difference if they are in an environment with other females who can encourage them and give them the confidence they need to excel.'
