Sisters Danielle Durrant, 16, and Chloe, 14, from Docking, were joined at the top by Keira Alwood, 26, of Norwich, and Poppy Hawkins, 16, of Snettisham.

They took the top four places at the National British Kite Surfing Association Tour held in Barrow-in-Furness, Cumbria.

Poppy's dad, Marcus, was also successful, clinching third place in the Seniors class.

Chloe also won the King of Watersports Best Trick Award at the event.

The Norfolk-based kiters battled in a freestyle competition against girls from across the country to claim the top podium positions with Chloe first, Danielle second and Keira third.
