Default KITE FOR GIRLS EVENT IS SATURDAY MAY 14TH 2005

Hi All,
The Kite 4 Girls is coming again on Saturday May 14th.
After the huge success of last year event , we had to offer a 2nd edition and give more women the opportunity to express themselves , make the show or just try it out.

Along with 2 separate women contests ( Amateur and Pro) this year event will feature, expression sessions from several team rider , Free discovery and advanced clinincs all day, Last gear demo, Safety and Injury prevention clinics, plus a Huge rafle with tons of kite related gear to win.
Women willing to participate the Contest (riding to jumping , all levels welcome) should click on the link and pre-register online.

Most of last year sponsors are supporting again this last Event of the season 2005, where the entire florida kitesurfing community will be showing up. Team riders from most major kite brand and locals riders were also doing the show on the water, and we expect them to hit it again this year.
The show should be on also between the Women contest heats.

Check on the link for detailled info. Event Program and sponsors participation will be updated daily.

Don't miss it ! That's in Crandon Park Saturday May 14th 2005
Be aware that as of February 2005 NEW REGULATIONS apply to ride in Crandon and will be strictly reinforced especially that day.
check that link for all rules updates: http://www.miamikiteboarding.com/New...%20Crandon.htm
That is actually our main challenge with the County and park office and we expect to show that kitesurfers are responsible and concerned about safety. Miamikiteboarding will be distributing IKO level 3 card to confident riders along with a streamer to ride that day. WARNING : HELMET REQUIRED! No exceptions !

See you on the beach.
