KB4girls heading to Maui
The 3rd edition of the KB4girls Tour 2010 is rapidly approaching and set to take place in the tropical paradise of Maui, Hawaii from April 9 to 11. With its amazing kiteboarding conditions, the emerald waters of Maui promise a great venue for the event and offer participating girls a chance to bring their kiteboarding skills to the next level. The KB4girls Maui date is the first of three American events in the 2010 tour schedule, offering female kiters from around the United States the chance to join and learn from the champ.
But this event has even more to offer! To support the female athletes as much as possible and to offer the participants an amazing program and every reason to make their way over to Hawaii, KB4girls has teamed up with the Maui based water women program “Butterfly Effect”.
The “Butterfly Effect” has been organizing downwind runs for female athletes of all watersports for the past 3 years and will be using the KB4girls clinic as a platform for their kiteboarding participants to prepare for their Maui Downwinder on April 17th! More information about the Butterfly Effect can be obtained on their website: www.betheeffect.com
To round up the program, girls participating in the KB4girls event on Maui will also have a chance to participate in an IKO (International Kiteboarding Organization) instructor course starting on the April 12. In this course they will be able to obtain their IKO instructor license, which qualifies them for a dream job in one of the countless IKO centers around the world.
