This is awesome!! I love how the sport is growing with females. 2 seasons ago I saw a scatter of women with their boyfriends/husbands riding in Cape Town. Last season I was amazed to see just a crew of women hanging out on the beach together - riding together - with no boyfriends or husbands in sight. It was great to see that they were riding out of pure joy and appeal rather than their spouse dragging them along to enjoy it as I've seen while I was an instructor 4 years ago. (not to generalize or anything)
KB4girls, Kitechix and other female specific clinics/groups are doing a great job!
I was listening to a Snowboard Retail Conference and the overall thing that stood out was:
- Female snowboarders make little snowboarders!
They are more willing to take their kids out to learn the sport because they want to continue doing the sport they love as well. -
