Hannah Whiteley: riding in style

She is not dressed to kill. She is dressed to kitesurf. Pro kiteboarder and model Hannah Whiteley decided to ride in style.

Men know how difficult it is to walk on high heels. And women too. Now, imagine the challenges of walking over water in court shoes. It's true, leave it the pros.

"Kitesurfing in high heels was a lot harder than I thought it would be," explains Hannah Whiteley.

"I love trying different things and having fun with kiting. I really enjoyed working on this fun kite project and trying something new."

"You don't have to be a guy or a boyish girl to kitesurf; kiting is for everyone and a beautiful passion."

"Try something new today, and don't be afraid to have fun and be different. Life is too short to be serious. Get out there and enjoy yourself."

Hannah Whiteley was born on January 3rd, 1992.

The British kiteboarder won the 2010 Big Air contest at the PKRA Germany and finished first in the freestyle division of the KTA Turkey. Her local kite spot is Lytham, in Northwest England.
