International wakestyle stars Stefan Spiessberger, Craig Cunningham, Noe Font and Fran Bagnioli head to Russia where they join Artem Garaschenko in his home spot of Baikal. One of Russia’s best kept kiteboarding secrets, this vast lake serves up textbook conditions for creative riding to unfold. Prepare to be wowed, the level of riding is fierce!
Lake Baikal, isn’t your typical kiteboarding destination. You’re probably wondering where that is, we’ll save you some time… it’s in Siberia! Close to the border or Russia and Mongolia sits the biggest lake in the world. Aaron Hadlow, Stefan Spiessberger, Craig Cunningham, Noe Font and Fran Bagnioli met up with team rider, tour guide, translator, etc Artem Garachenko! The trip was planned to be an adventure but nobody expected this. Multiple broken vehicles, days and weeks without wind, countless hours on the road, low nutrition and some of the hardest conditions we’ve ever dealt with all made the sessions we did get that much more special. It’s a trip we’ll never forget and spots that will be burned in our memory forever! Thanks for the ups, the downs and all the good times at Lake BAIKAL!
