The kiteboarding company provides a special tutorial on winter riding, complete with information on places to ride, the ice conditions on Madison lakes, safety, clothing, and various other considerations, along with a FAQ on winter training for new riders. Winter will be ending soon, but its never too late to begin thinking about the next season.
