Looking for some winter kiteboarding fun?
Then check this out! It is almost time for the 27th Annual Sturgeon Stampede
on Lake Winnebago Feb 12-14! Only a 1/2 mile out from the shores of Fond du Lac, this event provides easy access to fun for everyone. More event info here! http://www.wakkiteboarding.com/2016/01/544/
The conditions are shaping up nicely with the WAK shacks already launched and several ramps have been constructed and tested. We did manage to catch some drone footage before the big storm early last week so you could see the excellent ice conditions. https://youtu.be/k0YPQI3d894
We got about 8" of snow on top of the ice last week and we have been riding all week. With the big storm headed our way later this week, things are shaping up nicely for the event.
This years event will be a part of a new local winter event called the Sturgeon Spectacular
. This local winter event will have multiple venues and activites throughout the Fond du Lac area including on the lake and in the city. For more info on all of the events and itineraries for the entire weekend, please check out http://www.fdl.com/sturgeonspectacular/
This site has all the different events and locations listed along with times. Additionally, if you will be looking for lodging
, please check out the site as the Fond du Lac Area Convention & Visitors Bureau has arranged for several lodging specials with many also providing free shuttles to several of the activities!
Please note that WAK
will be hosting the On Ice Kick-off of the Sturgeon Spectacular Friday night! So if you are coming into town early to stay overnight, please stop out on the lake for your Friday night entertainment!
