September 20, 2011: KB4girls and Dream Extreme team up to teach women kiteboarding while raising money for a great cause.

For the second year KB4girls descended upon The Hamptons, legendary playground for many of New York's rich and famous.  Local event organizer Linda Argilla and her Solutions From the Heart team once again created a unique event that brings kiteboarding to a new audience, and like all KB4girls events, empowers women to push their personal limits and overcome difficulties. 

Dream Extreme: Challenge to Triumph is an event like no other KB4girls.  By fundraising to support children and women in abusive families in New York and disadvantaged kids in Haiti, this event is not only fun but also very meaningful.

Kicking off Friday night, the KB4girls participants were hosted in the Southampton home of one of New York's most accomplished and cherished philanthropists, Henry Buhl, founder of Project Comeback (ACE) - a fantastic initiative which provides jobs for homeless in New York City. 

Henry's fantastic sunflower house was the perfect setting for cocktails and appetizers and for the star-studded line up of coaches to get to know the women they would be guiding through kiteboarding fun for the next two days.

Saturday was about as full and exciting as a day could be!  In addition to the 20 amazing ladies participating in both beginner and advanced kiteboarding clinics, the Montauk beach Dream Extreme event site had something for everyone. 

From SUP to a palm-reading fortuneteller, long distance swimming, kayaking, yoga classes and two delightful massage therapists the sponsors and supporters were entertained and pampered.

Saturday evening's gala dinner at the Four Seasons Southampton gave the kiters a chance to "scrub up" and show off their fanciest duds while rubbing elbows with hot New York socialites. 

This year's honoree, Courtney Dawson, a young philanthropist and Founder of The Dawson Scleroderma Foundation, was in attendance, as was supermodel Bonnie Pfeifer Evans, the Honorary chair of Dream Extreme. 

Both of these gorgeous and inspirational women are really excited about kiteboarding, which is fantastic for our sport!

Sunday it was back to the beach at Napeague where the focus was making the most of the incredible winds and teaching the women to fly. 

These lucky ladies had some of the top coaches in the world, including BEST Kiteboarding namesake and wakeboarding Hall of Famer, Shannon Best and internationally accomplished rider John Modica. 

Coaches came from as far as England, Turks and Caicos, Cape Hatteras, Oregon, Dominican Republic and of course the great crew from local kite schools were on hand to impart their knowledge and get the girls stoked.

The Dream Extreme event takes the core value of KB4girls - empowering women - and brings the energy of kiting to a group of women (and their children) who need empowerment the most. 

Through the participant's personal fundraising, ticket sales, and silent auction the KB4girls/Dream Extreme partnership has once again created something spectacular and made a real difference in the lives of abused women and children by supporting the Edwin Gould Services for Children and Families and their important work.

The KB4girls foundation and worldwide tour is supported by Best Kiteboarding, DaKine and Kiehl's.
