A couple old guys you may have heard of decided to see who could learn more about kitesurfing faster. Give you a hint: one owns a small media company and an island, the other used to be the head of the free world. Answer: Richard Branson and Barak Obama. You can check out their adventure here.
WCCO TV did a story on snowkiting in MN. You can see a little background video from the Mille Lacs Snow Crossing. Check it out here – Snowkiting Group Loves This Minnesota Winter.
The Lakawa newsletter noted some of these snowkiting tidbits in various news outlets. I thought I would share them with you in case you don’t get that newsletter.
- Katie Heaney went snowkiting. She didn’t fly. – Outside magazine
- Winter wind. Kite Crossing event this weekend on Mille Lacs Lake – Brainerd Dispatch
- Snow kiteboarding 101 – Brainerd Dispatch

Just heard about the Catchin’ Air reality show. It is from Discovery HD Theater. Here is the story: a team of professional riders and support crew push the limits of kite boarding while pioneering new riding locations. Check your listings to see if you have it. I think it is channel 656 for Midco users in the Bismarck area.
