NEVER COME DOWN

Alberta Kiteboarding

 

 

Gord Campbell operates High As A Kite Kiteboarding. The company was started in Calgary in 2001 by Dusty Wilson and Gord, two professional freestyle ski coaches. When they weren’t working with elite athletes teaching them to flip and twist, they were on the water somewhere. Both shared a passion for the water, and were avid windsurfers spending as much time in Maui as possible.

It was in Maui that they saw Kiteboarding in its infancy and were instantly attracted to its potential. The fun soon began! First off they had to teach themselves. The stories from those early days could fill a book. As Gord says “ It took me 3 years, to get to where my students are now in 3 weeks.”

Kiteboarding is an incredible sport. You can take it to what ever level you wish. Every time the wind blows you will want to be out kiting! Like all great sports the socializing and storytelling after a great day are almost as much fun as the sport itself. Kiteboarding will open up a whole new world of fun for you.

High as a Kite operates in southren Alberta at Keho Lake

High As A Kite has negotiated a lease for the best kite location on Keho Lake! Farmer Don’s point, previously only accessible by boat has now been developed into a kiting paradise. With both overnight and day use facilities, the Kite Ranch has the safest water access on Keho Lake

Access to the Kite Ranch Launch is private and on private property.  When the upper gate is unlocked and a Ranch member is present, the launch is open for use by all.   When the gate is locked, please continue down the lake to one of the other launches.  When the last member of the Ranch leaves, you will be asked to relocate to another launch so that the Ranch can be secured.   Please respect those who have worked hard to aquire and maintain this launch.  

Over night camping is by invite only.  If you have any questions, ask any Kite Ranch member and they will point you in the right direction.

The Kite Ranch is located on the North West shore of Keho Lake. It is the most prominent point of land on the north shore. Take #2 south from Calgary to Claresholm. Turn left (east) on the #520 (the shell station) Head 38 kms east to the T intersection of the #23. Turn right (south) and drive past Barons. 500m south of Barons turn left (east) on secondary #520. Its a gravel road that crosses over the train tracks. Take your first right (south) and then your first left (east) Proceed along gravel road, you are now paralleling the north shore of Keho Lake. 50m past the driveway of the only farm house on your right, you will see the gate to the Kite Ranch. Enter the field and follow the track to the kite ranch. Please stay on the track as this field is still active grazing land.
