Information about Lauttasaari, what's done there and who does it
Lauttasaari is one of the best snowkiting and kitesurfing spots at Helsinki.
For snowkiting it offers a good surrounding when the sea is frozen. For example the year 2010 the spot have been on it's best. Any winds from east-south-west works pretty good. You can get to the spot by using the Helsinki public transportations (busses 21, 65 and 66).
At summer time Lauttasaari is the closest spot of the center of Helsinki. It's not recommended for beginners, because the launch area is a really small and there is a plenty of things that can go wrong. But with South or South-West winds is't really good.
