Author: Best Kiteboarding

Looks like Bill Tai's and Susi Mai's Mai Tai events have a new competitor. Best Kiteboarding is helping launch the FoundersKiteClub.

• FoundersKiteClub brings business kitesurfing events to Europe
• Kiteboarding becomes the new golf for top entrepreuneurs
• Forbes Magazine relates billion-deals to business kitesurfing events
• World champion league: Kristin Boese, Youri Zoon and Lewis Crathern will co-host the first event 2013 in El Gouna, Egypt


FoundersKiteClub (FKC) hosts several kitesurfing, community and entrepreneurship events supported
by BEST KITEBOARDING at premium kitesurfing venues. Entrepreneurs, investors and innovators meet
like-minded people for networking and improving their kiting skills by learning from the best athletes out
there. The focus of these events are on business and networking in the informal atmosphere of
kitesurfing.

Together with Kristin Boese, Youri Zoon and Lewis Crathern the FoundersKiteClub kickoff event will take
place from 23rd-26th of May in El Gouna (Egypt). Christoph Jost reveals that there are already top
entrepreneurs on the participation list.

“Kitesurfing bonds a certain type of people: entrepreneurial, successful, those willing to take a risk, are
adventurous and at the same time have a relaxed and open minded attitude to life, which proves to be
an explosive mix of characters," positively admit both of the FKC founders Christoph Jost and Sebastian
Heitmann, CEO of Best Kiteboarding. "We are stoked to bring the business - and kitesurf events to
Europe."

The participation is per invite only. Applications can be sent via www.facebook.com/founderskiteclub or
directly on their webpage www.founderskiteclub.com.

The connections which are made in strong winds also can last in business life. Over 7 billion dollars have
already been generated in market value which forbes magazine*
relates to kitesurfing business events that have already taken place in USA.
