NO PRO - NO PROBLEM
ENJOY KITEBOARDING FROM THE FIRST RIDE
Do you remember how you felt when you first started kiting?
Pause for a second and remember how you felt during those first few sessions. If we think back for ourselves, we were both excited and terrified at the same time.
To see all those great kiters jumping around can be an obstacle for some to start with kiting. By motivating and empowering others, we can feel great about ourselves and enjoy our lives to the fullest.

Feel great about yourself from a nervous beginner to a confident kite surfer!
This video is for the ones who want to feel great about themselves from a nervous beginner to a confident kite surfer:
Step 1: Have FUN in the process. Appreciate where you are now.
Step 2: Let's learn from others and teach others. Be kind, supportive and helpful.
ALL IT TAKES IS A LITTLE KICK
We girls are generally not as confident as guys are, when it comes to sports – that’s a fact (well, maybe you are, but most women are not).
Do you also have a friend who is afraid to try because she thinks that she is not strong enough or she is too tiny to handle all the kiteboarding gear?
"Sometimes just small encouragement can mean a lot to the person and increase her confidence"
WHY SHOULD WE HELP EACH OTHER?
The more we encourage women to feel confident from the first ride, the more fun and joy kitesurfing brings us all.
It’s great to have fun and work on yourself but once we help others to feel great about themselves, it will bring more joy to us as well.
On top of it, kite spots will be much safer as we educate newcomers around us and make them feel free to ask for help.
FROM WONDER WOMEN ONE DAY TO POTATO THE OTHER DAY
Have you ever felt like you got it all and you progress fast and jump like you’ve never jumped before? And then… the other day you ready to rock’n’roll and continue in your superwoman mood and nothing works as you expected?
Relax! Every day is different – not just wind, waves, and conditions, but also our mood, energy, and strength. Appreciate it. Be grateful for being able to kite, be on amazing place and having free time to do what you love. Don’t beat yourself up. Accept it and try to just enjoy the free-ride, yourself and the beauty of nature.
LET'S LOOK AT IT FROM DIFFERENT ANGLES... EVERY EXPERIENCE IS VALUABLE
Have you ever self-rescued and swam an hour to the shore? Have you ever steped on a sea urchin or injured yourself and could ‘t kite for next week or two?
Have you ever lost your kiteboard and didn’t get it back?
It may seem that all universe is against you. Or you can look at it from the different perspective and be grateful. I know what you think. Grateful for losing my kiteboard? Seriously? No way!
Think how much all these lessons teach you about kitesurfing and your own. It’s like a speed up life course. Let’s love them all!
HAVE A PLAN B
Do you also know those people who are happy only when the wind blows (or maybe you are one of them)
Well, let’s face the fact that mother nature is stronger then us and we don’t do much about it. Instead of being grumpy and moody and check the forecast every hour, let’s have a plan B.
Have fun and enjoy the day surfboarding, SUPing, yoga or creating something valuable for people around you.
