The Chicago, Northwest Indiana and SW Michigan area kiteboarding crews are coming together to host the "Race The Lake Downwind Classic" on April 8th at Porter Beach, Indiana.. Since there is a high chance of wind everyday in April, we will be heating up the stoke with kiter camaraderie at the first ever Southern Lake Michigan Kiteboarding Race.
Here are some details about the event:
Every kiteboarding participant will be part of a randomly selected team consisting of intermediate and advanced riders. The team with the fastest total time during this 5 mile downwind stretch of Lake Michigan, will be the victor. Every rider will also be entered into a raffle for the chance to win a new 2017 BROKITE board and other awesome swag. If you haven't tried a "Bro Board," then get on board and Demo one at the event.
