May 14 & 15, 2016
Location: At the State Park (the beach) in Grand Haven, MI
Our biggest festival of the year! See giant kites and expert kite fliers from all over! This festival is FREE to attend, though there may be a charge to park inside the State Park. (Out-of-state residents and those who have opted not to add a recreational pass to their license plate tabs will need to pay; those who do have a recreational plate tab will get in free.)
All kiteboarders are invited to come and ride so people can see what this great sport is about!
MACkiteboarding will be hosting the 15th annual KOGL in late September 2016.
KOGL 2016 Dates will be Sept 23, 24 & 25
For the last four years the KOGL Test Fest format has been such a smashing success we are bringing it back once again for 2016.
With 3 evenings of wind, 8-12 different Kiteboaridng brands and over 70 different kites to test and ride 2016 KoGL is a recipe for a great weekend and good times. Throw in a couple of great MACkite parties and a few late nights chilling downtown Grand Haven and it will be a weekend to remember.
