KiteAddictColombia x Vivida Lifestyle Colombia
It comes with much excitement to announce that the 1st September 2017 saw the launch of Vivida Lifestyle in Colombia. The fuel and the fire behind the wave, Sophie Jackl tells us a bit about her story, her kiteboarding school KiteAddictColombia and introduces us to #VividaColombia.
KiteAddictColombia brings on kids from the local community that are as young as 8 years old. Sophie and her partner Martin teaches them english, teaches them to kite, gives them jobs.
Kiteboarding, as almost all those that practice the sport know, is so much more than a sport. For the kids in Colombia, it quickly becomes not only a hobby for them but a way of life; some becoming kiteboarding instructors and financing their families through the sport, some even competing and reaching a level where they compete internationally.
KiteAddict Colombia acts as as a sort of social hub. The school connects the kids from the local community to people from all over the world. It instills confidence, independence and inspires them to discover more and more of this world. It is a true ambassador to everything the Vivida Lifestyle represents and we are blessed to announce this partnership.
