Kitesurfing, while considered a variety of windsurfing, is its own adventure. It is an activity reminiscent of a time when man was trying to create the first ever flying machine. In fact, the sport can be traced all the way back to 1903 when a man succeeded in crossing the English Channel using his “man-lifting-kite.” Nowadays, kitesurfing is a popular and exciting sport, with athletes catching big air and carrying out impressive above-water tricks. The Great Lakes offer great waves for both beginners and advanced kitesurfers alike!
