This year we’d brought with us our ExPix team riders, 2 x British Champion Hannah Whiteley, and big air rider Ali Barrett to give them chance to experience the KBO. Despite the size of the event and the numbers involved there is always a fantastic atmosphere at the KBO and such incredibly friendly and enthusiastic people. Kitesurfing is big in Holland and the sport based lifestyle means that events such as the KBO are well supported.
