This is the 2nd time I write something about kite girls. 1st time on another forum was the report of KB4girls. Today someone asked me what I thought was different about kitegirls. “difficult question”.I know kite girls in the age of 18 up to 55 or so, and they have “certain things” in common. For one, they are extremely loyal to other kiting girls. Helping them, supporting them. They make time for each other, no excuses like “I have to leave early, because….”. Their heads are full of chasing wind, great adventures. With their multitasking back ground they try to combine work, love and choose for freedom or whatever comes best in life. Lara Croft was their grand ma.
I wish that one day I would be able to write a book about all of them. Perhaps combine all their crazy things, stories in 1 figure. Simply because they all live every day as if it was the last one, and travel the world as if it would die tomorrow.……
Love your post. I too have thought a good deal about this topic and also love to write. Let me know if you ever want to explore further, I'd be happy to be a sounding board. Working on some ideas myself. :) Kite Girls are certainly adventurous, giving, and willing to push themselves into uncharted territory!!
it has been 3 months after I opened this thread. I want to share my thoughts with you. 1st I believe that dreams can come true. You must work hard for it, and tell everyone. So this is my dream:
I want to organise a kitesurf event and write a thesis about it. I just finished my trip through Polynesia and this is the place where it all is going to happen.
Polynesia (=Hawaii, Easter Island, Tahiti) to me is a region where you can experience the aloha spirit. It will change your life, well. It changed mine. When I returned to Europe I tasted a world of greed, intolerance, a discontented society. News papers make assumptions with the period before the world war. With kitesurfing becoming Olympic I want to make a positive statement. I want to organise an event on the most beautiful beach on earth and call this Polynesian event "RACE AGAINST GREED". I truly discovered the most beautiful kite beach on earth.
I found a (Holland based) professor in Leisure and Tourism, who could judge my thesis. Now I m looking for a university where I can work, teach whatever. I speak 6 languages. In the thesis I make visible, countable, in an indiscutable way what the outcome, result is for organising a watersport event. In this way I will not be begging for monies to organise a yearly returning event. I will become a professional sharing partner for primary and secondary stakeholders (local governments, politicians, hotels, restaurants etc). My focus is watersport/kitesurfing. I will achieve a win-win situation for all parties and stakeholders.
Yes I have an academic background. Everything on this level is easy for me. Becoming a kitesurf and fitness instructor was way more difficult. I meet kite girls around the world and they are just beautiful, loyal and strong. They know the meaning of "sharing" and supporting. They have great personalities where ever they live. On the beach of Moorea I met kitegirls and talked to them on the beach. I was thirsty and bought 2 pineapple juice. I could only buy 2 because I had no more money. I shared what I have with them. Later, one of them came to me and gave me a black pearl. Polynesia is giving and sharing. That is where my hearth is.
If you hear of an opportunity at a University somewhere in Polynesia, please share this with me. All your tips and comments are welcome. I surf the internet for vacancies.
If you have dreams, share this as well on this great kite forum. Perhaps they come true……try sharing
This forum is a medium where you can capture all the spirits of the now existing kite girls. Girls should write more about there ordinary lives, dreams, just things which keep you going on. All the kitesurf magazines are so alike. Something should change.
