Minnesota kiting

Postby MN_Kiter » Thu Jul 11, 2019 4:54 pm

Hello,
I just moved to SE Minnesota, and am looking for some local knowledge on where to go kiting, conditions, etc. Any Minnesota kiters out there?

I'm heading to Walker, MN on Saturday through Thursday. Hoping to score a kite session on Leech Lake.

I’ll be a little south of there in the Crosslake area next week. Where’s the launch at Leech?

Adv Log,

I've never been there before! Going with my wife's family for a reunion. Really hoping it's windy so I can be excused...

I will be kiting next week on Lake Sylvia (South Haven/Annandale). Bringing a full range of Peak4's and hydrofoil. Anyone out there? I grew up there but live and kite in Boston.

Ok finally had a chance to do a little research on the kite spots in MN.

This link should prove helpful!
(long range wind forecast is looking kind of bleak....but I'm bringing the kit anyway.)
