2012 KoGL Test Fest

Posted: September 20, 2012 by in Kiteboarding Press Releases

For Immediate Release.

MACkite Presents: The 12th annual King of the Great Lakes – TEST FEST 2012

September 28th – 30th

MACkite would like to welcome you to the 12th annual King of the Great Lakes Kiteboarding Competition and Test Fest. Coming September 28-30, MACkite will be hosting a family friendly kiteboarding competition formally known as the King of the Great Lakes (KoGL). The Beaches of Grand Haven will be filled with Kite ranging in size from 3 meters to 17 meters.  It is hard to imagine we had 4 guys show up in 2001 and this year we expect 30-40 competitors and over 100 kiteboarders.

New this year at KoGL Test Fest: The MACkite Trainer Kite Field will be available for all event attendees. Trainer kites ranging in size from 1.7 sq meters to 4 sq meters will be available to fly alongside a MACkite or pro rider instructor throughout the day for a 15-minute mini trainer lesson. This is the perfect opportunity for anyone who has been interested in the sport of kiteboarding or even power kiting to get a hands on introduction to the sport in a safe and fun environment. (more…)

Looks like we will have over 40 kites and 16 boards  for Registered KoGL Riders to demo!

This guy knows how to get it done.  Alex talks a little about the new Asylum wakestyle board.  Riding the Slingshot 141 Asylum and Slingshot 10m RPM kite.

Dont usually post wake videos but this one is mostly cable and is pretty amazing.

Liquid Force rider Raph making things look easy on cable, winch, and boat.

Look for the same slider base on Liquid Force kiteboards this year!

Jake and I grabbed the truck and made our way down to Zeeland this morning to pick up some new toys for the KOGL test fest.

Look out later for more on this.  Lots of fun on the way.
