Re: Maine snow kiting?

Re: Snowkiting - are people losing interest?

No loss of interest here. I taught myself to kite in Downeast Maine in 2003 and have been going at it ever since. I can count on two or three hands the number of times I've ever seen kites other than my own (and those are people I know). I'm usually just sharing the lakes with sleds and fishermen. I...
