Hi all,

I wanted to say what's up to all kiting fans on this forum. We're from the wind capital of the Midwest...Northwest Michigan (Frankfort), and if you're looking for awesome, consistent and clean wind, check us out! Best place in the Midwest to hanglide/paraglide too!

They have good wind in Tawas too, as it is at the northern end of Saginaw bay. So, if winds are prevailing from the south or east (across Lk Huron), wind is nice and clean. In certain temperature conditions, you can get a nice off land wind (from the west) towards the lake. With regard to geography and lake weather, I would consider Tawas a good comparison to Frankfort, a kind of mirror as we have lake to the west - land to the east, and Tawas has lake to the east and land to the west - both have lake to the north and south.
