Code red because of heavy snowfall? Many kitesurfer-heart starts to beat faster. Can we finally go snowkiting in our own country? This afternoon the time has come… In the whole country heavy snowfall and at some places even more than 20 centimeters. Time to throw all the gear in the car, let’s go snowkiting.
What is snowkiting?
Snowkiting is nothing more that kitesurfing in the snow. The only thing you have to do is swap your kiteboard for a snowboard or a pair of skis.

That’s all you need to be able to snowkite in the Netherlands. Where in the Netherlands is it allowed?
We all know the big open fields in Norway, but where do we find that in the Netherlands? Right, just at a farmer. But ask for permission first of course!
Tip: grab an old snowboard or skis. The chance that you hit the ground in the end is quite big (it’s still the Netherlands).
