Red Bull Megaloop - Kitesurf competitions

The wind window for the Red Bull Megaloop is open between April 1 and November 1. This kitesurfing event is held depending on the perfect conditions. The perfect conditions for the Red Bull Megaloop are of course 35+ knots of wind and a sea with beautiful waves to launch into for the coolest jumps. With the Red Bull King Of The Air still fresh in our minds we were looking forward to the Red Bull Megaloop. This took place on September 19 and it was a great success.

Angle to Clear - Kitesurf downwinder

Angle to Clear is a downwinder where more than 400 kite surfers from Hoek van Holland to Den Helder kite surf. Entirely devoted to the Heart Foundation. Hoek tot Helder saves human lives. In 2021, 450 kite surfers participated, who together raised 602.665 euros in sponsorship money for the Heart Foundation. What a wonderful achievement for participants, helpers and organization. We were looking forward to Hoek tot Helder 2023 and September 20th was the day. The 6th edition Hoek tot Helder was a great success with more than 2023 participants in 500!

Formula Kite in the Netherlands

The Formula Kite competitions in the Netherlands concluded with a bang from 10 to 21 August during the World Sailing Championships for Scheveningen. This concerned the Olympic discipline.

Looking back 2020 – The best kite foilers in the Netherlands were in 2020 from 18 up to and including 23 August in action at the European Championship in Puck, Poland. A great addition to the kitesurfing competitions. Then it stood from 15 up to and including 20 September the European Championship 'mixed relay kitefoil' on the agenda. This was planned on the Traunsee in Austria. This competition format is also a new Olympic discipline in 2024 and 2028.

Kitefoil Cup Holland

The stops of the Kitefoil Cup Holland are planned continuously and are sometimes also ad hoc. In addition, there are sometimes also competitions in which every kite foiler can participate. How cool is that! Check out the latest updates and/or sign up at

Open Military Championship (OMK) Kitesurfing

In 2021, the Royal Netherlands Army and the Dutch Kitesurf Association organized the first Open Military Championship (OMK) Kitesurfing in Bloemendaal. It was a twintip race for anyone who can kitesurf, is employed in the defense and/or is a veteran. You can register at NLveteran and it was a cool event.
