Hannah Whiteley on BBC

Postby ianpics » Fri Nov 16, 2012 9:50 am

Hannah Whiteley's travels and support from her sponsors have made people sit up and watch - ExPix managed to get the BBC interested in doing an interview with the girl from Stockport who travels the world .... hopefully more to come but not a bad start with amazing viewing figures ! See the short report and clip from the programme here

lol ....... agreed to a point ..... :wink:
but not everyone knows about kitesurfing or thinks they could do it and this takes it to the masses ... and hopefully brings more people to the sport!

With the clips in the programme it shows what can be achieved just by starting at your local ....

If you get to Hannahs standard (or look like her lets be honest) then coverage is easier as is sponsorship but we all have to start somewhere and grassroots is important.
People like Hannah inpsire others, this is where I train, this is where I go.... etc

Check where Langerees, Lenten, Zoon, Hadlow all started ... ;-) and it wasnt some sunny Carribean beach.
So promoting the sport whilst pushing a rider is a good thing and if there is another Venezuala video in the offing ...well I'm sure everyone will be waiting in anticipation. ;-)

I've downloaded a whole bunch of her vids and she is awesome to watch. So much power in her riding!
