Malibu Kite Wave Contest
The Malibu Kite Wave Contest (MKWC) is a totally unique kite competition in Vietnam! We kicked it off in 2016 and it has been run annually since then (save for Covid-19 squashing our fun in 2021).
Our first event was just a one day affair, with friends on the spot, and prize giving on the beach afterwards. Fast forward to 2020 when the MKWC 4 was a weekend long party, with night time events, and a real party buzz on the beach, with live music, food & drinks and some super hot kite action! More than 50 competitors (both men and women) from 12 different countries took to the water in the wave riding and freestyle disciplines of the kite competition. Prize giving took place on the Sunday night at Cargo Remote followed by live music and DJs until late…
We’re so lucky to be generously supported by so many local and international sponsors, including our main sponsors North Kiteboarding and Mystic Boarding, who sponsored 2 full kite setups for our winners of the kite competition in 2020.
International brands such as Quiksilver and Roxy Vietnam, 69Slam and Ananas Surf came on board from 2019, growing our prize pot even more. Our local sponsors include resorts, restaurants, hotels, activity providers and shops, and we are so lucky to count all of these businesses as supporters of Source and the MKWC each year, and we look forward to continuing to nurture these important community links with future events and kite competitions!
