Two men were cited after they were seen jet skiing naked on Gull Lake earlier this month, according to a Department of Natural Resources incident report. 

The report said a DNR officer was called on Aug. 12 to Steamboat Bay on Gull Lake on the report of a person jet skiing naked. 


While launching a boat, the DNR officer was told by a Cragun's Resort employee naked people on jet skis had circled one of the resort's pontoons. The employee also said a blue boat that appeared to be with the jet skis circled a sailboat, nearly capsizing it. 

The incident report said the officer was able to locate that blue boat and the two jet skis. The officer also witnessed the two jet skis jumping the boat wake extremely close to the boat.

The incident report said the DNR officer was able to stop both the boat and the jet skis. 

The report said the two men on the jet skis, identified as Daniel Klingelhutz and Kody Teslaa, admitted to operating the jet skis without any clothing. 

Two witnesses also gave statements to the DNR officer that they had seen the two on jet skis with nothing on but a life jacket. 

Both Klingelhutz and Teslaa were cited for disorderly conduct and careless operation of a watercraft, according to the incident report. 

The incident report said Ryan Klingelhutz, the operator of the boat, was also cited with careless operation of a watercraft.
