"OUT OF WATER, I AM NOTHING."
Great Lakes Surf and Great Lakes Kiteboarding's owner, Brian LeFeve, has had a passion for water sports since he was 10-years-old and he doesn’t plan to quit any time soon. Brian’s history and his passion goes beyond the water.
Brian started teaching windsurfing lessons for The Windsurf Company in 1995.
With many years of retail and instructing experience, Brian decided to share his love for the water and created Great Lakes Kiteboarding School (GLK) which emerged at the dawn of the sport in 2002.
Brian’s reputation throughout the years has made Great Lakes Kiteboarding School highly reputable. With the ongoing success of GLK, Brian created Great Lakes Surf Shop (GLS) to expand and share his interest of other board sports including Stand Up Paddleboarding, SUP Surfing, Windsurfing, Longboarding and the newest water sport Foilboarding.
GLS is a rare blend of elite athletes with a friendly, down-to-earth approach while supplying the community with the lessons and equipment needed to be safe, fun, fast and stylish on the water.
GLS and GLK is equipped to transform a student from their first lesson, to being a fully outfitted enthusiast. While attending GLS events, excursions, clubs, classes, and races you will meet young, middle-aged and older folks alike, and they come from all over Michigan, Ontario, and beyond to participate in these incredible sports.
