Girls aged 9 – 70 kiteboarding with Kristin Boese

 Kristin Boese, 9 times World Kitesurfing Champion and Rolex Sailor of the Year nominees is on a mission. Kristin wants to give to give as many girls as she can the chance to get out on the water enjoying the fun and excitement on kiteboarding and in so doing give females a platform in the sport and make the a stronger force in a male dominated sport. That’s quite a big task to set yourself.

 Kristin launched KB4girls in December 2009 and at the Women’s Forum at the Conference gave on up-date on how she is getting on.  So far KB4girls has taken 400 girls kiteboarding in Australia, USA, Egypt, Spain, Germany, Sweden and the UK. The youngest was age 9 the oldest 70. Five participants have gone on to achieve championship podium places. All this was achieved on a very small start up budget. On top of this KB4girls has been raising money for charity along the way. Wow. Kristin has the biggest smile of anyone I’ve seen at the Conference and its easy to understand why

Kristin has more plans for the future to grow KB4sail and get yet more girls out on the water. I think it is a fair bet she will do just that. Here is the video she played at the forum and visit the kb4girls website for more information..
