The lack of any kind of discernible snow depth has not deterred the diehards. The surface of Lake Minnetonka was a white, glistening expanse of hard pack and small drifts. Fast, the lightest breeze sent you screaming across the plane. Edges barely holding, as you test the laws of inertia and physics. Crossing the entire length, exploring new bays, and riding 360 degrees around Spirit Island made the day one to remember.

Throughout the day riders came and went. Frowns turned upside down and worries blown away. It never ceases to amaze me the positive, good vibrations and friendly atmosphere the Minnesota Kite Crew provides. Always a good session.

 

About the author

George Lemson

I grew up 45 minutes from the east shoreline of Lake Michigan and learned to love the water in all it's forms; fluid or frozen or fluffy. After a stint in the U.S. Air Force and three years fighting forest fires for the U.S. Forest Service. Ski patrolling for Powder Mountain Ski Resort in Utah and finally working the tugboats on the mighty Mississippi. I found myself in Minnesota where I discovered and fell in love with everything kite related. I now spend my days chasing the wind, loving life and connecting with my son Zion.
