Hey fellow kiteboarders. Looking to get some riding in while hanging out with other kiters. Well, it is that time of summer for the Mille Lacs gathering. The dates are July 29-31.
Here is what I got off the Lakawa Facebook page for details:
I’ll need verification but something like 12th annual summer gathering of the wind souls. Coming from near and far to gather for an opportunity to share the wind. We have an abundace of kiteboarding locaitons and subsequently don’t get together as often. Bring your frisbee, dog, mistress, family, banjo, hacky sack, big cooler, slack line and most importantly smiles. It’s a unique tradition for the untrained eyed to witness with all the kiters, gear, stories, etc. Gear will be for sale, some for demo, and Elvis may show up wearing an inflatable flamingo. Several securing first come first served lake shore camping for $20/nt https://www.google.com/maps/place/22700+327th+Pl,+Aitkin,+MNfirstname.lastname@example.org,-93.5333498,590m/data=!3m2!1e3!4b1!4m5!3m4!1s0x52b168e17887a725:0xb34f43331005edf8!8m2!3d46.3435304!4d-93.5311775
They may be short on firewood but the tribe and vibe is inbeatable. This is the one time a year I sleep in a tent! I’m flying in a National Team Rider Kevin Hoye to help with a kiteboarding foil clinic. Forecast is keeping us all in suspense but we’ve learned it’s better to show up and bring the stoke. Lots of 2017 gear to show off and plenty of gabbering about the techy side of kiting. OneWheel available to demo. Anyone have a grill? A teddy bear?
