 About Us:

46North Adventure Co is your headquarters for adventure based sports in the north country. We are not your typical sporting goods store. We specialize in Stand Up Paddling, Kayaking/Kayak Fishing, Windsurfing, Kitesurfing, Fat Tire Biking and more….. Our goal is to provide you with expert knowledge and customer service combined with quality product to get you on your next adventure.

Stand Up Paddle Boarding: Whether you are interested in recreation paddling for yourself or the entire family or looking for a specific board for fishing off or a streamlined touring/racing paddleboard we can help select the right equipment. 

 Kayaking and Kayak Fishing: Take your kayaking to the next level with a hands free pedal drive fishing kayak. We have the knowledge and experience to help outfit your rig for your next fishing adventure. We also carry a large supply of recreation and touring kayaks which are fitting for our 10,000 lakes.


 Windsurfing: Fun for the entire family. Harness the energy of the wind and feel the excitement of cruising across the lake windsurfing. We have windsurfing packages as well as WindSup “Stand Up Paddle Board/ Windsurf crossovers. Our staff will help you set up your equipment so you are familiar with it once you leave the store. 

Kitesurfing: With Minnesota having over 10,000 lakes, kitesurfing is fast becoming the sport of choice who want to experience the thrill of the wind. Our summers can provide very good conditions for kitesurfing and our winters can be magic for snow kiting on skis or a snowboard. We will help you choose the correct equipment as well as showing you how to set it up. We also offer year-round lessons which we highly recommend as kitesurfing can be a very dangerous activity for beginners. Lessons are highly advisable.  

 Surfing: Minnesota has one of the largest fresh water lakes in the world. Actually it is the largest by surface area. Lake Superior is more like an ocean and can stir up some simply amazing surfing conditions, when it all comes together. We've been surfing the Big Lake for awhile now and feel like we have the knowledge and experience to get you on the right board and outfitted with the right wetsuit/gear. Surfing the big lake isn't for everyone but it is for those who yearn for adventure.

 Cycling: Our region is becoming very well known amongst cycling enthusiast. Whether you are looking for a relaxing ride along the Paul Bunyan Trail or a scenic single track adventure in the cuyuna mountain bike area, we will get you going with a nice selection of Felt Mountain Bikes and Fat Tire Bikes. We also offer Ebikes which are a nice option for those looking for a little assistance. 


Please note: We are not a big box store or a discount/wholesale online retailer. We pride ourselves on customer service and personal attention. Our customers come back year after year because of this. We invite you to stop by our store in Nisswa to see and feel the difference. 

Sincerely, Evan Lawrence

I have been extremely happy with my 10'6 Ride! I purchased this model only because Evan at MN Surf Co said it is the best in the industry and was very knowledgeable and helpful over the phone. I have taken the board out multiple times now and it never disappoints! The board is rock solid firm and cuts waves easily. I have had my dog and niece and nephew on the board with me and it does well with extra weight. The bag is a little bigger and heavier than I expected, although it is still manageable as a backpack but not the most comfortable at 40lbs. Also, the pump works great but when you get up to 15psi the pressure is so much that it is extremely hard to pump and someone my size at 130lbs, I have to lift my feet off the ground and put all my weight over the pump to push it down because I don't have the strength to do so otherwise. Overall I'm extremely happy with my inflatable board and its convenience! I would recommend the 10'6 Ride to anyone who is wanting it for convenience and to use for yoga or any other board workout!

Love it

Just realize it takes about 5-6 minutes of heavy pumping, and huffing and puffing to inflate. And you'll be asking, is it really not inflated? But it will. To deflate and put in bag and car= 6 min.

Tracks really well. Does not make my feet numb like some fiberglass boards. Tippy-er than I thought, but its perfect. Can't wait to take it traveling!

Evan's expertise and customer service are top notch. He responded quickly to my request for more information and asked very specific questions that assisted him in making his recommendation for the best product for me. The product arrived within two days and has exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend MN Surf and will definitely remain loyal to them for our future needs. Thanks Evan!

Beautiful Board

This is my first SUP and is a great board for a newbe. I am able to do yoga on the board, cruse around the lake and fish off of it. Very sturdy and user friendly, my 5 year old takes it around as well.

Stay in touch
