Tawas Bay Kiteboarding:

Referred to as the "Cape Cod of the Midwest," Tawas Bay has long been considered one of the finest sailing areas in the country due to the steady winds and protected waters. Consistent winds, clear, warm water, and abundant sandy beaches make Tawas Point a kiteboarding nirvana, with conditions ranging from shallows for lessons, speed slicks, downwinders, and waves. Our exclusive shallow water lesson site is perfect for learning. Experience the pristine natural beauty of Tawas Point and maximize your learning and freeriding with our local expertise.

Tawas Point is located off US-23, 2.5 miles southeast of East Tawas on Tawas Beach Road. It is just over an hour drive from the Tri-Cities and only three hours from the Detroit area. Amazing versatility and variety abound at Tawas Point which will please any kiteboarding riding style: Free-Ride; Wake; Surf; and Snow.
