You might be asking yourself, as I have over the last year, do we really need another kiteboarding website in Minnesota?  Honestly I have no idea if there is a need.  My goals with this website as with all of my photography and video work is to explore different ways to capture the stoke of the ride, the essence of our community, and the issues that come up.  Some of the images and movies I make work and some don’t.  I expect the same to be true with this website.  There are things that may work out and others that just don’t get used.

I hope you join in and contribute to the creation of this site.  You can register for the forum and add your thoughts, comments, questions, etc.  The forum is mobile friendly so consider posting from the lake and let others know how it looks, how its going, or how it was.  You can subscribe (on the left) to get notices of new posts (Ramblings and Galleries).  LIKE and SHARE end of session content to your Facebook or other social media thread.  Let me know if there are other features I can add.
