I went yesterday at about 7 and yeah, it was mad icy. Had one spectacular bail out on 55 where I lost an edge on a patch of ice close to that orange building near the bottom and tweeked my ankle something fierce. Hopefully the wind is good tomorrow and I can do some kiteboarding in the fields of Chatham-Kent before my family Christmas dinner.

What time of year does the outback at MSLM open? I've been twice already and enjoyed it, but to go a few more times for the same stuff is pushing it. I want their world class park.

Does anyone know any decent boarding backcountry/none-resort areas in Ontario? Tired of searching topography maps and coming up empty handed

Did she say Strap-in or Strap-on?

Honestly, do what I've done and get yourself a powerkite. There's too much flat land here (especially in Southern Ontario) to not take advantage of it.

The only bad part is sometimes there's not a whole lot of snow. However, if you head out around Grand Bend, there's a ton of places to ride. Just be careful in corn fields as tripping up on ruts between rows hurts when you're blasting along.

Indeed.

I ordered my kite out of China because I wasn't sure if I was gonna enjoy it. Got a 3.5m trainer for $150 with ropes. Had to buy my own harness and bar but I got those out of the US. Maybe have $300 invested total. Used it a few times this year on the snow and had a good time with it, but I highly suggest you learn to use it in the summer on dry land. The only thing I don't like is that it's like sailing and going up wind is tedious, but hey.. complaining about that is pretty petty.
