KB4Girls Global tour prepares to return to kiteboarding paradise El Gouna/Egypt on the Red Sea
Kite Boarding Club and El Gouna/Egypt will host Global KB4girls event from June 15th – 17th 2012
Maui/Hawaii: Event number four of six on the 2012 KB4girls GLOBAL event schedule will take place in El Gouna/Egypt from June 15th to 17th, 2012. The event will offer female kiteboarders the very special chance to kite and train under the instructions of 9x world champion Kristin Boese and pro coaches Andrina Kelly and Dagmara Dentkiewicz.
With the amazing learning conditions in the flat and shallow water lagoons of El Gouna and with June being the windiest month in Egypt's wind-statistics the event is already guaranteed to be a real success for each of the participants.
The very special female environment will do the rest to bring motivation to the next level and improve the skills of the girls and women kiters to the max.
Dagmara Dentkiewicz, part of the KB4girls local chapter in El Gouna and IKO Instructor Senior at Kiteboarding Club expressed her enthusiasm about the forthcoming event: "I am very excited to take part in KB4girls camp. We already organize girls' meetings at Kiteboarding-Club every week, so it's really great to now host a global event here in El Gouna. I am definitely looking forward to seeing Kristin again, and to kiting with girls from various spots and countries."
Kristin Boese, founder of the KB4girls foundation says: "The KB4girls event in El Gouna is going to be such a great opportunity for our participants! It will be the perfect kite-get-away for them and will see girls and women from all over Europe as well as Asia and Oceania come together and push each other.
"They can bring along their friends and family, learn new skills, kite with other girls and, of course, explore beautiful El Gouna and all it has to offer. I am already so excited because I know just how much progress the ladies are going to make in these absolutely perfect learning conditions!"
But El Gouna has a lot more to offer than just the perfect kite conditions. This self-contained city, also known as the Venice of Africa, is situated on the Red Sea coast, only 20km away from the Hurghada airport, with good connections to most European countries. The city provides comfortable relaxation and a huge variety of activities, like Golfing, Go Karting, Camel Riding, Kiting and much more.
And the city of El Gouna is thrilled that Kristin and the KB4girls foundation have chosen to return for one of their 2012 events. Preparations for the female invasion are in full swing and next to the fantastic hotel and travel packages below the "Gounies" have planned many other activities such as SUPing with SUP Red Sea and Liquid Park, a possible down winder and a massive final beach party at Buzzha Beach.
Travel deals include hotel rooms starting at 14 Euro per night and person (in a double room) as well as flight and hotel packages from the UK (from £499 for seven nights) and Germany (from Euro 482.00 for one week).

KB4girls is a foundations that empowers females through the sport of kiteboarding that was launched in November 2009 by 9x Kiteboarding World Champion Kristin Boese. While the international clinic events gives female athletes from around the world the chance to get together for a fun and female experience 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 local charities that reach out to females in need which is done through fundraising at the KB4girls events.
