Red Bull “Battle of the Sund” on the 20th/21st of August at Malmö

17. August 2016

Kiteboarding-event taking place at the strait of Öresund the second time after 2014

Hundreds of kiteboarders from all over the world are again coming to Malmö to compete at the “Battle of the Sund” 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. The kiteboarders have to overcome a distance of about 40 kilometres.

At this years’ event, 500 kiteboarders from about 20 nations are expected. The spectacular competition has a somewhat historic note, since the Öresund bay once was the scene for a big naval battle between Denmark and Sweden. After its debut in 2014, the event is taking place for the second time this year and promises to be an exceptional sporting event worth to watch.
