Default KITE4GIRLS ** 2006 ** First Look

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.


Lined up and ready to rip loose into the race




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.


The girls barrel in from one of many womens heats


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.


Irma heads about


Greg Kuklinski and two ladies from the Treasure Coast


CJ experiences puppy love


The guys have their turn


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.


The competitors and winners


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.


Take a bow Clarrisa and Jessie


Melissa riding for JN kites wins the women's competition


Fabian also riding for JN wins the men's comp.

Lots more to come ...

Default You won a few things at the raffle...

Hi Rick,

At the raffle right before the closing ceremony I think you won a few items.

One of them I believe was the green Slingshot Misfit board ... Not sure who is holding it for you though...

Hello Bob,

Thanks for passing the news along! I will give Christophe a call. Hope you had a good time at the event.

In the meantime, what do they mean "walk like an Egyptian?"

Default kite for girls

Hello kiters,

What a great day at the kite for girls comeptition!

It seemed to me that everyone had a great time at the beach. We all looked like a big family doing our thing toghether.

I am glad that every kiter used a helmet and respected all beach rules. What a great oportunity to show other beach goers and city of miami our interest for maintaining this area for our fun.

Boys and Girls, this is what kite surfing is all about!

May this event and many more like this past one come upon us.

Great pictures from Rick..... Hope to see alot more!

Kind regards,
bigkite representative

Rick- I believe that Neil has your board in the trailer, call him.
I really liked that board, so you may have to wipe off some of my drool from it...
The after party spot was OVERWHELMED with all who showed up. The food was good, but service was not.No Budweiser products and no habla Ingles.
A guy named Chris from Ft Lauderdale got his '05 13m Fuel ripped off, along with his keys and wallet. I got 50 bux towards a replacement kite for him,who's in?

Hey Rick, Great job on the review, that was really fast. You're getting really good at these.
Had a great time Sat. Thanks to everyone who put forth the effort, it was a lot of fun.
Stevil, where did Chris get his stuff stolen from, the beach or the restaurant? That really sux, puts a damper on a great day.

Chris got it stollen, right off the tounge of the XRated trailer. I hope his stuff turns up soon and it turns out to be just an accident. Can't me in for a donation to Steve. He really had one of the worst days ever.
