Most Influential Girl Kitesurfer 2012: Top 10 Finalists

The top 10 finalists in the 2012 “Most Influential Girl Kitesurfer” competition have been chosen, and voting is now open to the public!

The competition was designed as a campaign to promote girls in kitesurfing, and kitesurfing to girls.
By showcasing women from all walks of life, size and age excelling at kitesurfing, inMotion Kitesurfing hopes to inspire more women to get involved in our sport.

At the same time though, there are so many girls out there already doing really awesome things for kitesurfing and/or their community, so we want to give these girls some well deserved exposure and recognition for all their hard work and achievements.

We received so many nominations for girls all doing amazing things in kitesurfing and for their communities, so narrowing it down to just ten was no easy task.

Top 10 Finalists in Alphabetical Order:

• Kristin Boese
• Cynthia Brown
• Katie Chandler
• Sophie Chevalier
• Tatiana Howard
• Gretta Kruesi
• Claire Lutz
• Susi Mai
• Verda Marley
• Hannah Whiteley
