Ice Fest Snowkiting 2011 – Breezy Point, MN

Friday we had a great day for kiting it was a little gusting and blowing 20. There were a bunch of people out on the lake. Quite a few people even had a nighttime session with some good steady winds. Mike Bares had brought up a nice warming shelter and Todd Hanson brought up his awesome snow machine and groomer. With the help of a few people we set up a kicker and Todd groomed all the area around…. making for some awesome smooth riding.

On Saturday, the morning brought some light winds (Up to 10mph), but definitely doable for kiting. We were able to play around on the kicker and do some riding around. Just as we were talking of starting the race, the wind dropped down and made the race around gooseberry island unfeasible. But after some planing we came up with a 1 on 1 figure-8 course. The light wind made it hard to get up to the line without kites dropping, but we ran a few races.

Of the races that were completed the results are…

Denis Foo Kune (17.5m Slingshot Machine) vs Todd Hanson (15m Slingshot Rev 2)

Adam Burggraff (14m Slingshot TD2) vs Denis Foo Kune (17.5m Slingshot Machine)

Looking forward to next year!
