Terry McKenna is the new Kite Surf Pro World Championship Tour manager. The former man behind professional bodyboarding enters a new adventure in the wave riding world.
The Kite Surf Pro World Championship Tour (KSP) has announced the name of Terry McKenna for the position of world tour manager. McKenna will take his new position with immediate effect, relieving former Tour Manager, Kristin Boese.
"We could not be any more excited to welcome Terry on board. With his passion and drive Terry will be an incredible fit to the KSP crew and with his vast expertise will be a great asset to the tour", explains Kristin Boese, KSP president.
"Having been a mentor to me over the past two years, Terry has already influenced the KSP more than he may realize. Taking over the tour management position I am certain he will now be able to steer the KSP forward even further".
Terry McKenna started his career as a competitor on the IPS Surfing World Tour, 30 years ago, and has been involved in wave riding sports ever since.
No matter if as a surfing coach, event commentator, team manager, sports administrator or reporter, McKenna has stood out in every challenge he was given. The Australian sportsman was in the IBA World Tour for seven years.
"My work with the IBA was a great challenge and the team we assembled was amazing. I am very proud to have been a part of this evolution for the sport of Bodyboarding, but I needed a fresh start, something that I could get passionate about again, and I have found this with the KSP World Tour", says McKenna.
"It's an amazing genre of wave riding and I can't wait to work closely with all the crew at the KSP". The Australian sportsman will take the KSP and the best wave kitesurfers to multiple countries.
