Melissa Marquardt Set to Host “Girls Only” Camp

Liquid Force Pro rider Melissa Marquardt will hold a "Girls Only" summer camp alongside 2010 Junior Worlds Champ Kim Kirch at KC Watersports June 6-10. The camp is designed get more female riders involved with the sport.


From the Release:

Marquardt said, "I'm super excited to teach an all girls camp!  The sport of wakeboarding is exploding and we need more female riders to break out in this industry.  I'll be giving basic instruction to riders that are just starting and advanced instruction to the aggressive riders."

Ms. Marquardt is willing to try anything twice!  She will test the waters when most guy riders won't even consider it.  Marquardt is one of the most versatile riders in the entire wakeboarding industry right now.   There will be different groups that Marquardt will be teaching to insure that riders are learning at their ability level.

Kim Kirch is a solid rider and has recently captured the title of "Junior Worlds Champion".  Kirch has traveled the globe wakeboarding and has developed her skill level.  Kirch will continue to travel to tournaments throughout the summer; but when you don't see her traveling with the pro tournaments you will see her working at KC Watersports.

Kim Kirch stated, "I'm excited to be working alongside Melissa Marquardt for the girls' camp at KCW!  Being able to give other riders the confidence they need is such a great feeling.  We all wakeboard because we enjoy the sport, but the rush you get from learning a new trick is unbelievable.  One of my favorite things is seeing the smile on a riders face when they land a new trick or hit a kicker for the first time.  I'm ready for summer to begin."
