Global Female Kite Day: no men allowed

The Global Female Kite Day will be celebrated on the 1st December, 2013, with a series of worldwide kiteboarding activities.


Female kiteboarders from all over the world will unite to passionately celebrate women in kiteboarding through a series of fun, non-competitive kiteboarding events.

The initiative run by the KB4girls Foundation aims to honor women in water sports and encourage more females to participate through their global network of 22 chapters, which actively hold regular ladies' kite events in their communities.

"In a world so entrenched with gender-bias, the KB4girls Foundation Global Female Kite Day is a great opportunity to showcase what we know - that kiteboarding is a fabulous activity for women - challenging, empowering, invigorating and community-building", says Laurel Eastman, KB4girls vice-president.

Female kiters from all kite sports (kiteboarding, snowkiting, buggying and powerkiting) are encouraged to get out on Sunday, December 1st, fly their kites with their girlfriends, post photos and stories on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter tagging #KB4girls.
