TAMPA/LONDON/PERTH, April 26th, 2011: In the growing Australian kiting community the Easter Weekend was celebrated in a very special way. Kiters were also able to compete and/or cheer at the Australian National Championships in Alva/Queensland taking place April 22nd to the 25th, 2011.

With the KB4girls 2011 World Tour being a crucial part of the National Championships in Alva the event schedule got a boost with the female participants coming together 2 days before the start of the competition to prepare for the big show.

Unfortunately the girls met with 2 days of no wind but this did not to stop them from improving their skills in a very special way. World Champion coach Kristin Boese took the opportunity to focus on her secrets for success by teaching the girls the skill and benefit of mental imaging.

Kristin Boese says: “This was actually the first time we had enough time to seriously focus on the mental part of competing and with the competition so close all the girls really focused on actually applying mental imaging techniques to fine tune their strategy. There certainly was no time to be bored or complain about the lack of wind.”

Participant Pip Cox was beaming after the event stating: “What Kristin is doing for girls in kiting is great and her efforts are greatly appreciated by everyone. Even though there was no wind for the clinic I still got so much out of the couple of days. Also Anja (Reuthe), the co-trainer, was fantastic and the atmosphere between the girls was amazing.”

When it finally came to competing, the female competitors field was filled more than ever before for an Australian Nationals event with 16 girls competing. The girls also showed just how much they had learned and improved during the windless days and ran spectacular heats, showing off a lot of variety, style and power.

Alexandra Wood had to say: “The girls showed more tricks in their heats than the boys and it was really fun to watch and be part off the event.”

The KB4girls foundation and their 2011 World Tour is supported by Best Kiteboarding, DaKine and Kiehl’s.

About KB4girls
KB4girls is a non-profit worldwide clinic tour for female kiteboarders that was launched in November 2009 by Kristin Boese. While the tour gives female athletes from around the world the chance to get together for a fun time together it also motivates them to push their kiteboarding skills to the next level and possibly start to compete in kiteboarding.

Another goal of the KB4girls events is to support the Surfrider Foundation Europe and the protection of the oceans and beaches. While registration fees are being donated to the Foundation educational materials are being supplied in return and given out to all participating girls, teaching them about their precious playgrounds and how to possibly help to protect them.
