Kristin Boese has announced the ten venues that will be part of the 2011 KB4Girls World Tour. After the success of the first season, the kiteboarding champion wants to step up the project to a whole new level.
The KB4Girls Foundation, a non-profit organization registered in Hood River/Oregon, will be the support of the kiteboarding clinics. "The year 2010 has truly been amazing and extremely motivating for me. Seeing all the happy faces in our events and feeling the support from all the local communities and female kiters around the world has shown me that there really is an objective and a future to KB4Girls.", says Kristin Boese.
"It was the most amazing feeling this past year to be able to help others through our sport. Through our events we have learned how to channel even more focus on reaching out to others and have added even more goals and targets to our events. Establishing a foundation was the first step for us to take to be able to realize these goals."
There will be three types of events. The KB4Girls Pro events specifically target competition coaching and are will motivate females to start kiteboarding on a competitive level. The KB4Girls Unite events are going to unite females around the world and give them the opportunity to meet new female kite friends and experience a female-only environment.
The KB4Girls For A Causa events introduce fundraising events into the schedule and program by teaming up with local charitable organizations to support women and children in need.
