Kitesurfing in Chicago

Starting in 2011 the Chicago area was completely new to kiteboarding. When we at Chicago Kitesurfing go out to Montrose or Michigan City to kitesurf, we are usually swarmed by jetskiers, windsurfers and others asking questions about what this sport is and how is like to be a kitesurfer.

Kitesufing is a complex, but rewarding sport. There really is nothing like it. It involves a combination of several sport skills.

At Chicago Kitesurfing, our goal is to make kiteboarding a safe and rewarding sport that anyone can learn!
