GRAND HAVEN, Mich. (WZZM) - With more snow set to fall on West Michigan, several winter enthusiests attened a snow-kiting demonstration Saturday in Grand Haven.
The event was put on by "MACKite" which is a locally-owned kiteboarding retailer.
Organizers say snow kiting is very similar to kiteboarding and uses all the same gear, with the exception of a snowboard and warmer outerwear, and that the sport is actually easier because it takes less power to propel the rider.
Aaron Johnson, a local rider, says snow kiting is growing in popularity.
"It's a good cross-over sport for people who are looking for something to do in the winter time," says Johnson.
