Curious lake dwellers spied something high in the sky over Lake L'Homme Dieu on a wind-whipped September afternoon. A few folks cruised over to Rotary Beach on Monday to watch Nathan Borer catch some waves - it was prime surfing weather.


Borer navigated a 14-square-meter kite, catching air currents up to 90-feet above. When a good wind would come into the bay, Borer was whisked off to skate across the water.

"It's a powerful thing, the wind," Borer said between gusts.
