Although we have over 10,000 lakes in Minnesota, there are a limited number of them that are appropriate for kiteboarding. This statement is even more true in the summer when you will be sharing the lake with swimmers, boaters, and much more. We have compiled a list of the most popular locations to try to help you choose what is best for your skill level and type of riding. We know this isn’t a complete list, especially when it comes to winter options, but we hope it will help riders that are new to the community or area.
