Kitesurfing whilst pregnant is a subject that gets a lot of mixed opinions when we talk about it and whilst it is easy to offer sound advice on kiting ONCE you have had children, giving advice on riding whilst pregnant is a very touchy subject.
That said a lot of expectant mothers out there still want to know, so the best way we can help them make choices is to share experiences of others. Of course our editor shared her experiences of kiting whilst pregnant a few years ago but now we have a new take on the subject from Russian rider and snow kiter Elena Antokhina.
Let’s hear her story…
My name is Elena Antokhina and I have been riding since 2007.
I have taken part in Russian competitions and many times won in freestyle and race disciplines. In 2008 my husband and myself opened our own kite school which works successfully today and organizes kite clinics all over the world.
In April 2016 my baby-princess was born means that I was pregnant the whole last winter season. However it didn’t prevent me from staying at the kite spot. In February I went to the Far North of Russia where we have been organizing our snowkite tour ” Snow-White Tundra” for 8 years already.
