Kitesurfing in Alaska-Anchorage

Postby k2thiago » Sat Sep 07, 2019 7:12 pm

Hello everybody,

Is anybody has experience kitesurfing in Alaska, specially near to Anchorage? Any known spot, shops to rent gear (if possible) etc... I may have a shot to ride there on the beginning of October, however couldn’t find much information online only webpages from 2009.
Thanks in advance!

My son in law used to live there and they kite on the turnigan arm. He is now in Fairbanks. Pretty tough place to kite. Wetsuit/drysuit, big tides, and silty water. That being said, there is a pretty big community there.
