Final preparations are being made for this great event. The Blizzard of 05 dumped plenty of snow across Minnesota and all the local competitors have been dialing their moves to compete with the national pros.

The venue will be spread across two lakes, with the finals at Kite Island, Lake Minnetonka, Minnesota. There will be kickers, massive jumps, and plenty of open expanse to ride till your thighs hurt.

Keeping with the Kitefreeze tradition, we have significant cash awards for those reaching the podium. All registered competitors will be entered in a raffle for asssorted gear.

As always, registration is Free.

This is an event for everyone. Three days of fun in the sun. Come out and ride.

The Slingshot crew will be on hand with all the 05 toys for riders to check out and take for a test drive.

Check out the website for all relevant documents on the event.

After running clinics and teaching solo lessons in the Minnesota for the last 3 summers and now seeing what can be accomplished in S. Padre in a very short time, I don't think I will ever attempt to teach here (Minnesota) in the summer again.

We took 8 students down in midApril or a 4 and a half day clinic. Some had never held a bar before, a few had spent some time on the snow. By the end, all of them were riding comfortably.

The water is flat, warm and shallow. The wind blew 15-25 everyday cept one that was 20-30. The launch is just a big flat expanse of sand. The water is never over your head for miles in any direction.

If anyone is interested in learning to kite...or windsurf... this is the place to go. We may have another clinic, though you can contact Shane at South Padre Island Kiteboarding on your own as well. He'll set you up.

Here are some photos. There looks like very little wind, but it was blowing 20+ in each of the photos, most of the kites were 8-12m.


Anyone who currently contacts me regarding lessons, I suggest waiting till winter, going to Hatteras or Padre for a focused couple of days of learning, or learning on a mountain board.

In Minnesota, we have 10,000 lakes though until you know what your are doing, the situation is fairly dangerous. Trees up to the shoreline, deep waters within feet of shore and unpredictable gusty winds. In the winter we can walk or drive out far from shore where everything is easier.

I know it is much easier in places like the shores of the great lakes, and the Broneah bros have found some great spots to teach...as for us though...I'm still looking. Until I find a better one around here, I'm sending students to Padre.

The thaw zone is moving through the Twin Cities this week. Most of the lakes south of the twin cities are open now. Color is filling the skys on area lakes. Spring winds can be furocious at times though it is so nice to be back on the liquid state of H2O.

There's quite a few people heading to S. Padre this month, to brush up on their water skills before hitting the 35 degree water, or many who have learned in the winter want to ride in warm waters first.

We have a clinic heading down there next week. Should be a good time.

Here's a short rant from our local site regarding what to wear when cold water riding. (windsurfing and kiting related)
