KB4girls Foundation & the KTA
The KTA and the KB4girls Foundation entered a partnership agreement in which the KTA supports KB4girls and has hosted events with them over the past seasons. The goal is one of cooperation to promote female kiteboarding in Asia and motivate more Asian girls and women in general to take up kiteboarding on a competitive level.
The first event together was as part of the KTA tour stop on Boracay Island, Philippines in 2011 and others have followed from there and the hope is to continue these training opportunities together into the future.
What the KB4Girls is all about
Established by world champion kiteboarder Kristin Boese in December 2009, the KB4girls Foundation is a non-profit association driven by the passion to help others and unite females around the world through the sport of kiteboarding. Striving to reach out to a broad audience of girls and women, KB4girls gives females more recognition in the world of watersports but also reaches out to those women and children in need around the world through fundraising events and other programs.
The KB4Girls Foundation’s mission is to empower girls and women through the sport of kiteboarding. Our goal is to give females around the world a platform in the sport, help them to take up the sport, improve their kiting skills and even get to a competitive level. Through our events and through the KB4girls local chapters we want to further the motivation, self-confidence and courage of the participants and through fundraising we support women in need around the world.
- Bringing together females of all ages, social groups and riding levels.
- Helping to create local communities to support female athletes.
- Raising funds for women in need around the world.
- Raising awareness about environmental impact on oceans and beaches and contributing to the cause.
- Generating interest and awareness in the sport and being proactive in our approach towards its growth.
Kristin Boese, founder of KB4girls, had this to say about the KTA partnership –
“I am very thrilled about KB4girls’ cooperation with the KTA as I think both the KTA and our foundation are following many of the same goals and ideals like supporting the local communities and riders and working together for a healthy growth of our sport.”
