MACkiteboarding will be hosting the 13th annual KOGL in late September in 2013.  The 12th annual KOGL Test Fest format was a smashing success.  3 evenings of wind and over 40 different kites to test and ride made for a great weekend.  Throw in a couple of great parties and the Indie Rock Festival http://www.gh-iri.com/  and it was a weekend to remember.

Mark your calendars, check out the 2014 kiteboarding gear you will want to test out and head down to Grand Haven for a great weekend.

Are you ready to ride? We are gearing up for the 2012 KoGL Kiteboarding Competition and Test Fest. This year we are changing the game a bit. Modern kiteboarding gear is exploding with great new features and kites are becoming much more riding style specific. In order to allow you, the rider, to check out all this great new kiteboarding gear, MACkite is setting up King of the Great Lakes as a giant Test Fest.

KoGL Test Fest is going to be featuring 2013 gear that riders can give a go. Here is a list of some of the kites available. Drifter, Rally, Rebel, TS, Switchblade, NRG, Kahoona, Crossbow, Envy, Chaos, Vector and more. We will also have a great selection of 2013 boards from Best, Cabrinha, Slingshot, North and Liquid Force.

Competition - Yes, we will be having some comps for those who need that venue. Best trick and big air will be in store for the freestyle riders, while future Olympians will be stoked on our Kiteboard Races. We will have seminars, extra race boards, and a couple of pros showing us how to make the racing program work. We know many of you want to learn, so this will be a great time to run a couple of races and figure out the basics.

Music, Parties and Art - Grand Haven will be a rocking town all weekend long for everyone in your group. Friday and Saturday feature the Indie Rock Festival with bands such as The Wallace Collective, Garret Borns and Ghost Heart. Grand Haven will also play host to Artwalk with over 100 artists displayed throughout the Grand Haven area. Of course MACkite will be hosting parties both Friday night and Saturday night to kick your evening off. Our new Boardsports Center will be rocking Friday. On Saturday night we will be hosting a pizza and movie night at Mulligan's Hollow - our very own ski bowl. Bring your skate board because the skate park is only a parking lot away.

Whether you want to watch, party, or ride, we have a participation level for you! Register early and save!
