Red Bull “Battle of the Sund” on 20th & 21st of August in the Øresund-region

18. August 2016

Kiteboard competition at the strait of Øresund

The kiteboarding-event “Battle of the Sund ” is coming back to the Øresund-region this weekend. This year around 500 kiteboarders from about 20 nations are expected to participate in the event hosted by the Austrian company Red Bull. Starting at the beach Ribersborg in Malmö, Sweden, the competitors board to the Danish island Flakforket and back again. In total, the kiteboarders have to overcome a distance of about 40 kilometres.

The competition has a somewhat historic note, since the Øresund bay once was the scene for a big naval battle between Denmark and Sweden. After its premiere in 2014, the event is taking place for the second time this year and promises to be an exceptional sporting event worth to watch.
