Kiteboarding in Atlanta

Atlanta is the capital of Georgia state located on the east coast of the USA. The climate is subtropical with hot summers and mild winters. There is no access to the ocean in the city but kiteboarding in Atlanta is possible on shallow and calm waters of Lake Lanier. It may sound easy, however, due to many hazards the spot is not the best place for complete beginners. You may expect boats, stakes, rocks and in the summer also swimmers. Anyway, during cooler months the spot is not crowded at all, so the water is yours! Launch the kite on a small beach and go!
There is one fantastic school here: Locus Wind Atlanta. They offer professional lessons for kitesurfers on all levels and claim that kitesufing in Atlanta in winter is possible! Just make sure you have a full wetsuit.
