Looking for some hard to find Windsurfing gear? Perhaps, you are looking for a paddleboard or great deal on a used kite. Well, if you live in the Minnesota near Minneapolis & St Paul, you are in luck. It’s time for our Annual Windsurf Swap. It has been a long standing tradition that we host our Windsurf Swap during the first weekend in May and this year is no different. So come on down to The House bring your old gear and see some old friends or make some new ones.
Living in the Midwest this is what most of our hills, and when I say “hills” I mean hills, look like for a majority of the season. Lots of dirt, with patches of man made snow that has been blown off course by blustery winds or the inattentive snow makers who have fallen asleep late into the night. This way of life here is a large reason that so many talented people from the Midwest are making big moves on the big mountains. When given the opportunity to actually shred a mountain in even moderate conditions, myself like many Midwest riders soak it up for every square inch of shred we can right down to the lift line. It’s in our DNA and shredding the worst conditions is our bread and butter for most of our lives. When you put the goods out in front of the Midwest riders you better believe we are going to rip it.

Fly Bikes got their wheels spinning and approached “almost spots” with a different perspective with DIY pallet board inspired ramps. Traveling some of the most beautiful cities in the world and riding spots that were once thought impossible was what they se out to do; and we’re sure glad they did. Thanks Fly for taking the scene up a notch again.
