About HWS


Harrison Windsports Society is made up of people who windsurf, kiteboard and wing on Harrison lake. We attempt to provide services such as keeping the beach clean and organized, having a porta-potty available for those who need it, maintaining a website with a wind graph and webcam and chat service, and maintaining a face book page. Additionally, the society works with the District of Kent and Harrison Village to ensure access is maintained for wind enthusiasts.  Everyone who is involved with maintaining these services are volunteers, and any money collected through membership dues simply goes to maintaining these services. Joining the Harrison Windsport society is inexpensive, and it helps us maintain these services and keep wind sports alive on Harrison Lake, a place we believe is a spectacular place to sail and kite. If you are interested in becoming a member please talk to any member on the beach or check out the webpage – “harrisonwindports.com” which has info on becoming a member or donating. You can also like us on facebook at “Harrison Windsports Society”. THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
