Santander, March 19th 2012: The second KB4girls event in cooperation with the KTA (Kite Tour Asia) finished successfully when the competition in Pranburi, Thailand came to an end last night and the Asian champions in Kiteboard Course Racing and Freestyle were honored.

During the first 3 days of the KTA competition the female competitors received tips, tricks and guidance from KB4girls founder and multiple times World Champion Kristin Boese. The competition coaching theory prior to the start of the competition was separated into course race and freestyle coaching while all girls were brought together for social time and a wakeboarding session to bond together as a group. During the contest each girl was then supervised as much as possible.

Kristin Boese says: “The KB4girls event in cooperation with the KTA is always very special for me and very different to all the other KB4girls GLOBAL events in many ways. Having been competing for the past 10 years now, it is such a pleasure to see new girls joining competitions every year and to be able to pass on as much of my experience as possible. The most important thing for me though is to create a real group feel between all the female competitors, as false competitiveness can be intimidating for new girls on the scene. It was simply great to see how well all the girls got along with each other and how supportive they were towards each other after getting to know each other a bit better. I had a great time watching and supporting the girls and hope they did too.”

All female competitors delivered a great show during the competition and showcased their skills. Congratulations go to all female competitors for their incredible achievements. The podium places for the 3 different disciplines read as follows:

Freestyle:

1st place Kristiin

2nd place Susan Kay

3rd place Ali Dudfield

TT Racing:

1st place Michalina Laskowska

2nd place Rebecka Maudal

3rd place Dina Muldasheva

Courseboard Racing:

1st place Kathrin Borgwardt

2nd place Rahel Holliger

3rd place Astrid Berz

While the Course Board Racing class also represents the Asian Championship podium, the Asian Freestyle Champions were determined by the season’s overall ranking. Congratulations also go to the female Asian Champions:

Asian Freestyle Championships (Overall ranking):

1st place Aya Oshima

2nd place Paula Rosales

3rd place Tien Ye

In addition to improving their competition skills within the KB4girls/KTA event in Pranburi/Thailand, the girls will now also have the chance to return the support by raising funds for the KTA riders grant program that supports Asian kite riders to achieve their dreams. Any donations for the program can be made here!

A huge thanks goes to the KTA for putting together another incredible season for the Asian competitors and to Huaplee Lazy Beach hotel for supporting the KB4girls clinic.

KB4girls stands for both, Kristin Boese for Girls and Kite Boarding for Girls and while the foundation was originally founded by Kristin to simply support females in kiteboarding through free clinics based on motivational and skill training it has quickly become a global network for female kiteboarding and now reaches out to others in need through fundraising as well.
