Extreme Kiteboarding Canada Style - Adventures in Waves and Snow

For kiteboarding Canada has a lot to offer. This massive country has two oceans and countless lakes for kitesurfing and endless mountain vistas for all the snow kiting adventures you need. This means that while in Canada kiteboarding you can find good wind, flat water and waves in the summer and lots and lots of snow in the winter from Coast to Mountain Ranges to Prairies to Coast!

Canada is known for being extreme. Extreme temperatures, extreme sports ... no wonder kiteboarding is popular here.

There are groups of kitesurfers on the West Coast in and around
Vancouver Island - Nitinat Lake
Whistler snowkiting

These locations are pretty close together and it is easy to visit each spot on a weekend to enjoy all the beautiful areas South Western British Columbia has to offer.

Packing up for the day - Nitinat Lake, Vancouver Island.

Vancouver Islanders can travel to most places in a day and Vancouver and Squamish residents can visit Bellingham just south of the border or hang out in the Lower Mainland.

New Brunswick,
Alberta, around Calgary - kiteboarding Keho Lake in Southern alberta;Quebec,around Montreal and the East Coast all have growing kiteboarding and snowkiting communities and forums, so local kiters can learn about good launch spots, check conditions and share information.

Here's a great vid of kitesurfing Keho Lake. The Alberta wind machine.

When many people think of Canada they, of course, think of snow. The reality is that the summers can get really warm (although you can't go wrong by having a 4/3 wetsuit for most of the year); and, there is access to snow anywhere in Canada in the winter.

Snowkiting is getting more and more popular as people find great spots in the Prairies and Eastern Canada on open fields and lakes and often enjoy kiting these uncrowded places with just a few friends.
