Photographing. (Kite)Surfing. Watching Deadman.
"It's great to see girls getting recognized in a good and professional way." This was what Tracy Kraft said when she first got in touch with windgirls.com magazine. Tracy, 30 years old and American born, is working as a freelance photographer on Maui.

With her friend, professional kiteboarder Nina Heiberg ("Nina is truely a star in all ways"), Tracy not only spends time on the water, but also travelling and photographing. Photos from her trip to Namotu/Fiji with Nina have been one of our recent highlights (find the link below) for sure. Tracy says: "Nina and I had such a great time shooting the Fiji trip."

Who are your models in sports?
For female Nina Heiberg. She´s the first girl that I saw kiting ... she rips. She has great style and to go with it an amazing personality. She´s a great friend. For male Elliot Leboe. He all around charges and has a super cool attitude about what he does. He´s a pretty cool boyfriend too.

Kitesurfing – better than sex? Why??? Hmmmmm

My grandmas whom I never got to meet
Is the sport of kitesurfing a macho-sport? I don´t think so, no. It can be whatever you make of it!
What do you think about the PWA-tour? not familiar with it
What do you like about the windgirls magazine?
A website of all GIRLS. Andy, you are a smart guy!!! Need say no more.
Three tips for GIRLS who want to learn windsurfing:
1) Take a lesson! It is good to know the general safety rules and to get familiar with the gear.
2) Charge, just go for it. You never know until you try!
3) Wear board shorts that you can tie on!
