The WAK crew will be hosting the 5th Annual Sturgeon Stampede Kiteboarding event and 21st Annual Sturgeon Stampede. The fun will be Feb. 12-14 on Lake Winnebago. All money raised will go to the Winnebago Assocation of Kiteboarding, Inc. to benefit kiteboarding in the Lake Winnebago Area. Friday will be final setup and ramp testing (if the wind cooperates). Registration until 11am Saturday, rider meeting at 11:30am. Events to start at noon. We will be hosting Kitercross/course racing, GPS speed drags, lake crossing,and of course the "Big Air" contest. Prizes, awards, and giveaways. Food and beverages will be available for sale to benefit the WAK. Bonfire and minnow shots to follow. Sunday is the alternate wind day for events; or the fun day/more racing if it is windy all weekend. $10 WAK membership fee, plus $20 event fee and you are entered into all events. Guaranteed to be a good time. Come out and support a local kiteboarding club looking to preserve the kiteboarding scene in the Lake Winnebago area. Registration form to follow soon @ http://www.wakkiteboarding.com/ Or for more info, please contact us @ info@wakkiteboarding.com

Hey gang, Stampede is coming up this next weekend. I hope everyone can make it for all the fun. Here is the press release that went out this past weekend in all the papers in the Fox Valley and Green Bay.

Press Release

21st Annual Sturgeon Stampede

The members of the Winnebago Association of Kiteboarders (WAK) will be hosting the 21st annual Sturgeon Stampede Kiteboarding Classic on February 13th, and 14th . The event will be held on Lake Winnebago ¼ mile off the shore of Fisherman’s Road landing (6 miles north of hwy 23 off hwy 151)

This year’s stampede will host many of the midwest’s best kiteboarders showing their favorite tricks while competing in a variety of heats including: Speed drags, Kitercross, Lake crossing, and of course Big Air . Events will be scheduled from Noon to dark each day, wind permitting.

Kiteboarding is the fastest growing water sport in the world, and can be enjoyed year round, on snow or water. It combines the fundamentals of wakeboarding or snowboarding, along with flying a 3 to 16 meter kite for power. The power of the kite is the adrenal attraction to the sport with jumps and tricks often exceeding 20 – 30 feet, and the ability to free ride for hours at a time. No gasoline or lift ticket required !

The members of WAK invite you to their event Feb 13-14 and suggest you dress for the occasion and bring your camera. Heated shelter, music, food and refreshments will be available. For more information check out our website at www.wakkiteboarding, or email any questions to info@wakkiteboarding.com



Start lining yourself up for 1 or both days ( we`ll be out on Fri also setting up)
While you are lining yourself up, HIT THE SNOW BUTTON.
We got a little snow a couple days ago. Probably about 4" right now! The crew was out yesterday riding. It is right on the edge. A little more snow would be great, but it is manageable now. We have been getting lake effect snow off and on all day today, so that helps some more. Looks like a good storm is forecasted for Monday night through Tuesday. That would be just what we need. Long range forecast also calls for a little more snow on Friday. Let's just hope we get wind for the weekend then. Can't wait for this weekend, always a great time. We'll be out on the lake Friday - Sunday, so feel free to join us any of the days. Saturday is the big event day though. Here is another link to our site with a registration form and more info.
