KB4Girls News:Women of the World Unite for the 1st annual KB4girls Foundation Global Female Kite Day

Written by KB4Girls on . Posted in News

Maui, Hawaii November 15th, 2013: On Sunday, December 1st, female athletes around the world will unite to passionately celebrate women in kiteboarding through a series of fun, non-competitive female kiteboarding events.

An initiative from The KB4girls Foundation, the mission of the Global Female Kite Day is to honor women in water sports and encourage more females to participate through their global network of 22 chapters, which actively hold regular ladies’ kiteboarding events in their communities.

KB4girls Vice President Laurel Eastman from Cabarete, Dominican Republic says, “In a world so entrenched with gender-bias, and in the realm of action sports in particular, 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.”

To learn more about the Global Female Kite Day please visit www.kb4girls.org to find a KB4girls chapter near you and become part of their celebrations. 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 #GlobalFemaleKiteDay, and to become KB4girls Foundation members.


About KB4girls

KB4girls stands for “Kite Boarding” 4 girls (as well as originally also “Kristin Boese” 4 girls) and was established with the goal to empowers females through the sport of kiteboarding. While KB4girls GLOBAL clinic events give female athletes from around the world the chance to get together for a fun and motivating experience and to push their kiteboarding skills to the next level, the KB4girls CHAPTERs connect females on a more local level through their social events that help build strong female kite communities around the world.
