KB4girls Ambassador Elea Faucheron from Charleston, South Carolina USA is excited about International Female Kite Week and says, “Female Kite week is about acknowledging all those kite girls who have come before us, those in the trenches of supporting us in this moment, and those who aspire to taste the sweet experiences yet to come. Kiteboarding cultivates a unique set of skills in women as they discover how they can pilot their lives, where they can lean into courage, and how determination catapults them through obstacles. International Female Kite week is about empowering women to celebrate the best in themselves!”
