RRD News:2014 Kite Babes

Written by RRD on . Posted in Industry News

From 12 to 15 June 2014 Hang Loose Beach in Gizzeria will host “Kite Babes” the second International Kite Camp dedicated to women.

Kite Babes is actually a great initiative Hang Loose Beach started last year which involved up to 30 girls of all ages, coming from different European countries such as France, England, Ireland, Belgium, Germany, and Italy.
The camp is a ‘full immersion’ week dedicated to kitesurfing – developed not just with the intention of bringing women into this wonderful sport, but also to create the appropriate elements of socializing and having fun all together.

In the first four days “Kite Babes” held a basic course dedicated to beginners, while during the final three days it’s time to go for the advanced course for further development of the 3 disciplines of freestyle, race and wave.
The participants will have the opportunity to learn and improve their kitesurfing, being taught by three international riders: Jalou Langeree, Kari Schibevaag and Alice Brunacci.
The event can count on some basic ingredients for success: the regular and constant thermal wind in the Gulf of Gizzeria, the location of Hang Loose Beach, the professional skill of the three international coaches and the enthusiasm of the Kite Babes!

Every day at 10 AM the activities start with the skippers’ meeting with “Kite Babes” coaches Jalou, Kari and Alice outlining the daily schedule.

The activities are usually interrupted by a short lunch-break which doubled as a debriefing for students on the morning’s activities.
The kitesurfing activities continue until 17.00 and then everybody can relax with a cocktail in front of a breathtaking sunset.
The whole week it’s planned not only to practice sports but also to having fun.

The enormous success and involvement of last year’s Kite Babes it’s a safe base for a new experience for women that will be held from 12 to 15 June 2014.
