After weeks of heated competition inMotion Kitesurfing and Jessica Winkler revealed the winner of the first Most Influential Girl Kitesurfer competition 2011, Kari Schibevaag is the winner.
From Stavanger, Norway, Kari took over 1000 public votes to win the title. She has been competing in snowkiting and kitesurfing for many years, winning world titles in both. For the past number of years she has been running girls kiting camps both in and outside of Norway. She is doing fantastic work for the community and the sport and is a great role model for other girl kiters out there.
Kari says: “When I am holding camps it’s cool to see how happy people get when they are trying it for the first time. It’s amazing and I see myself in them. I was just the same, full power and really wanting to learn.”
