Kiteskating on Ice in Canada (Ottawa) – Winterlude Camp

Claude Kiteskating in Ottawa

Sunday was a beautiful sunny day but again, the wind was offshore, light and variable.

The demonstration area was, however, very good due to some snow fall the night before. The wind was very light and team could only kiteski with the largest kites available for the event.

Arrived at Kite Camp early Sunday morning. The riders (Brent, Peter and Andrew) unloaded the equipment.

The riders did an excellent job flying the kites in such a light wind condition. Both the Tempest and the Patriot flew very well. (Being larger, the Tempest behaves slightly better in such light condition).

The crowd was larger on Sunday than on Saturday.  Also, there was a grand stage set up next to the Kite Demonstration area and that has drawn a very large crowd watching the stage and the kiters at the same time.

Two tempest kites got pumped up and ready for test runs. Note how good the snow coverage is!

Even though the wind was not perfect for both days, the Kite Demonstration Event was a major success. Many people has seen and watched the kiter up close, touched and felt the kites and other equipment.
