Best winter kiting spot at Kingston?


Good afternoon every one!

I'm from Gatineau(Ottawa).I'll be passing by this weekend and want to kite a bit.

I've been kiting for 12 years. I love the ice (speed)more than snow but I can appreciate the powder too...

Can you tell me where I could go...

Thanks a lot!

Marcel

welcome to kingston,
the lake is covered with snow right now, condition are great. Your best bet is to go to the bottom of Emily St
https://www.google.ca/maps/@44.2228145,-76.491519,17z?hl=en
you can park there and walk out on the lake. I hear we might get some more snow this weekend.

Thanks for the reply Mike!

I had a great sesh yesterday.Wasn't the best condition with poor visibility but still managed to have a good 76km distance...

I'll certainly be back with my wife and grand-childrens.

You guys-girl have a super spot....and loved the "steady" Wind. At least you've got some compare to Ottawa's crappy Wind.... emoticon

Hey Marcel

We were chatting today about South Padre - send me your email as I'd love to pick your brain. Much appreciated.

Thanks Marcel, just sent you a note.

Yeah wind died just in time for that one...or maybe I was camera shy.

Here's nice one Eric Healey caught from the underside:

nice photo Craig ! Props to Eric for sitting right under the kicker to take the photo. If the wind had died at just the wrong time that might have hurt emoticon
