Any Ride
No matter what kind of riding you want to do, kitesurfing, snowkiting, backcountry, freestyle, freeride, 2024 Olympics in Paris, LAKAWA School of Kiteboarding is dedicated to helping you get into the sport in a safe and confident manner. Our programs have been refined since 2001 teaching hundreds of students from Minnesota, Wisconsin, the Dakotas, and Iowa, to shorten the learning curve and get you riding as quickly and safely as possible.

All the Stuff
Entering a new sport can be overwhelming. Especially one that has the gear. We’ll show you what works and what doesn’t. We’ll help you get equipped or help you understand the gear you just bought. We’ll introduce you to the wonderful community of riders and locations we have in Minnesota.
