Great Lakes Kiteboarding and its crew of master mariners specialize in converting everyday hydrophobes into Poseidon-punishing aquatic athletes. In a five-hour private lesson, nautical novices can strap a slab of fiberglass to their feet and master wind-riding fundamentals like launching from boat and beach, proper riding form, and self-rescue. Apprentices seeking the deepest secrets of ancient boarders are invited to study at one of Great Lake Kiteboarding’s weekend camps. Starting with ground training to keep too much land from lubbing onto the kites, students will spend a Saturday morning learning about equipment, wind windows, beach etiquette, and safety before hitting the waves to learn basics of riding and landing. After lunch, it’s back out on the water to learn advanced techniques like self-launching, changing direction, and riding the edge, with all of Sunday devoted to honing newfound skills on the water while instructors on WaveRunners play safety shepherd.
At each Lover's Lane location, a team of romance specialists busies itself with increasing the chemistry between partners. The process requires a few key ingredients—a non-intimidating atmosphere, a broad knowledge of the shop's erotic wares, and most importantly, a playful and creative approach to intimacy. This fun approach is what keeps the store stocked with such a wide variety of items, from enticing lingerie sets available in petite and full-figure sizes to Kama Sutra massage oils.
In order to ensure customers feel completely comfortable, the lingerie and costumes are separated from the adult toys. The apparel side of the store turns into a holiday hotspot filled with romantic seasonal styles. The other side features such items as luxury massagers from Lelo and California Exotic Novelties and Lover's Kits, which package several products into a single purchase. The Perfect Seduction kit, for example, includes a silk blindfold, rose petals, and a singing gondolier.
