Kristin Boese: unstoppable kitesurfer

The KB4girls 2010 World Tour as it moves around the world is reaching out to the female kiteboarders in the South of Europe.

The Mediterranean village of St. Pere Pescador in the Catalonia region North of Barcelona near the French boarder was included into the calendar to cater to the Spanish as well as French girls and promises to be a very multicultural female kiteboarding camp.

From May 28th to 30th Kristin Boese will be teaching the participating girls new skills and moves. Participants will have the chance to improve their kiteboarding and get to meet new friends in sport. She will also be joined at the clinic by amazing pro rider Ania Grezlinska from Poland who now calls Spain her second home.
