A bit under two weeks ago we have organised the first Cabrinha Girls Weekend in Poland. We were quite lucky with the beautiful and sunny weather and so, during those two days we had everything: some kiting, some wakeboarding, some SUPing and a lot of chilling out. 17 kitesurfing girls showed up and all in all, I don’t think this event could have gone any better 🙂 I always wanted to do something active to promote kitesurfing among women but up till now I never really got a chance. I hope that from now on I will be able to organise this kind of events more often and make it into a regular thing.
We started our event with a meeting, where all the girls sat down and had a chance to introduce themselves and talk a bit about kitesurfing and everything connected with it… it was quite inspirational to listen to all of them talking about the things they love about the sport and how it has changed their lives 🙂 Just as we finished the meeting, the wind picked up and we were able to go on the water and have some fun. We tested various Cabrinha 2014 equipment and had a lot of fun trying new tricks and just fooling around 🙂
We also visited a nearby wakepark on Sunday… some girls had a chance to try riding the cable for the first time and they were all doing great!
We finished it all with a lottery and a small SUP race. I think this kind of event was something new on the Polish kitesurfing scene and I am really happy it all went well! Check out the video filmed by Daniel Dmytrów:
