Kristin Boese and the KB4girls

World champion kite-boarder Kristin Boese is launching first event of her worldwide clinic tour at the spectacular river location of Augusta, Western Australia.

The KB4girls clinic promises an exhilarating weekend of full immersion kite-boarding and recreation at the beautiful Augusta Rivermouth. Augusta is situated at the most south-westerly point of Australia is one of the most popular holiday areas where the Indian Ocean and Southern Oceans meet.

Kristin said: “The event in Augusta/Western Australia will be a great one to kick off the KB4girls’ tour. The spot in the Augusta River mouth is perfect with its shallow and flat water. It makes it easy for the girls to try to learn new tricks. It will be a lot of fun to spend a long weekend with the female kiters of Western Australia and I am very much looking forward to an awesome event and the official kickoff of KB4girls!”
