KITE4GIRLS ** 2006 ** First Look

Postby RickI » Sun Apr 09, 2006 2:55 pm

Kite4Girls went off today for the third year in a row with great conditions and an outstanding turnout. Riders were stoked to tackle X-Rated Kiteboardings boardercross in shallows off Crandon Park. Miami Kiteboarding has done an excellent job in creating and then bringing this fun event back each year. This is just a rapid first look at the day's happenings. I have about 1500 images to go through so there will be another well illustrated article to follow this one.

We were so lucky to have this wind pop up in the forecast only in the last day or so. For a second year in a row good winds blew for the event.

Guys too, well some guys anyway.

George Saunders and FOUR other video crews were present from kiteflix. You can see George hanging out of the helicopter to grab some great video.

This was the first year that Kite4Girls was officially coeducational. Jessie and his girlfriend ride together sharing one board, harness, kite ... you get the idea.

A huge thanks to Christophe of Miami Kiteboaridng, Neil and John of X-RATED KITEBOARDING for all their hard efforts and those of the legions of volunteers and generous sponsors that made this great event possible.
