KB4Girls News:Kb4Girls Global Event Lancing UK

Written by KB4Girls on . Posted in News

 

KB4Girls Lancing Chapter - 2013 GLOBAL CLINIC *16th - 18th August!* Come and stay with us and have an action-packed girls kiting weekend!

 

The next stop on 9x World Champ Kristin Boese's Global KB4Girls tour is none other then Lancing, UK! We are VERY excited to be once again hosting this awesome girls-only kiting clinic, and have a fantastic weekend planned, including the awesome Kristin Boese herself tutoring and inspiring you all to new riding levels!  Every year we see a gathering of like-minded, friendly and generally amazing girls who come together to push their riding :)

 

This 3-day event kicks off with registration on the 16th July at the Adur Outdoor Activities Center in Shoreham. We will get to know each other over a BBQ and games, and you will have the opportunity to go for a leisurely SUP on the adjacent river (SUPs courtesy of Evolution Watersports - danke!).

On the Saturday you will be grouped with girls of a similar level to work together with Kristin and other pro-coaches to push your riding and hopefully nail some new tricks. You will do land-based visualisation & watch water demonstrations before hitting the water for day of progression!

On Saturday evening we will be heading into Shoreham Town to 'The Beach House' restaurant and cocktail bar. Here we will enjoy a sumptuous 2-course meal and cocktails, and then party! The fancy dress theme for the night is 'Drinks' - so get those creative juices flowing and come decked up as a White Russian, Salty Dog, Zombie, pink lady etc etc etc! At the party you will have the opportunity to take control of the decks for a period and wow us with your tune choice (DJ name obligatory!). Big thanks to Lancing Kite Club and Kiteworld Magazine for their contributions!

 

On Sunday we will be organising a fun competition with help from the BKSA, before concluding with a presentation of prizes and awards. We will once again be remembering Fiona Claisse, a local kitesurfer who tragically died of cancer in January last year, by giving out an award to the participant who we feel best embodies her spirit and attitude towards progression.

EVENT INFORMATION

 

Event Level: this is an ADVANCED only clinic (min. requirement going upwind comfortably)

 

Local partners and sponsors: Evolution Watersports, Best Kiteboarding, Kiteworld Magazine, BKSA, BKA, Lancing Kitesurfing Club, Lancing Parish Council.

 

Cost : This is a FREE clinic! You will be required to contribute money towards accommodation costs (see below) and the meal/drinks on Saturday Night, as well as money for snacks etc. But all coaching is for FREEEEE! :D

 

Spot Overview : Chosen for the forth year in a row to host a KB4Girls Global event, Lancing is a popular South Coast kiting destination for many reasons, and regularly sees pro-riders on it's shores. Lancing can deliver a range of conditions, but the event this year is timed perfectly to co-incide with low tides. So you can expect shallow water with plenty of beach to launch and land on. The wind and weather is always a surprise in Europe, no matter where you are. So although we are hoping for beautiful winds and sunny skies, don't forget to bring your brolly! ;) The wind generally blows from the South-West and we commonly get 'Sea-Breezes' throughout the summer, providing steady 20mph+ wind conditions.

 

Accommodation & Directions : We will be staying Adur Outdoor Activity Center in Shoreham (map here) The centre has a number of communal 'bunk' rooms, and there will also be space for girls to 'camp' inside on air beds. There will be a small cost for the accommodation, which we anticipate to be around £10. But we will be unable to confirm the exact cost until numbers are confirmed.

We will be sending out directions with other additional information before the event.
