The real jewel of Minnesota. If you know that wind is going to change the direction, go to MilleLacs or Waconia instead.
The wind gets the power blowing over the lake so the narrow east end is actually well worth. Don’t go there if you’re not a good rider as it is really narrow.
Due to difficult launch the spot is not really a beginner friendly.

It is your responsability to check whether kitesurfing is allowed at the spot as local rules might change. Respect others - kiters or not; kite safely and enjoy the wind!
