Kite Beach at Cheney the early years

                            Primary Launches

Right now there are two primary launches at Cheney.  The first is at M&M Point  which is the place to be for south winds and is located on the east side of Cheney Lake.  The other launch is for North winds and this usually puts us at  the jetty near "Sailboat Cove" home to the NSA, which is on the west side of the lake.  Cheney Reservoir, approximately 25 miles west of Wichita, Kansas.

Currently we're looking into a new sweet launch spot at Wellington's lake.  (Wellington is just south of the Wichita).  The launch promises to provide TOTAL butter when the wind is from the south.  This launch is for advanced riders only.

We rarely get over to El Dorado Lake anymore.
