Myanmar Wave Riders Cup
The Myanmar Wave Rider Cup & KTA Race Open, will be the first time Myanmar (Burma) will have ever hosted a kiteboard competition. Kiteboarding itself is very new to the country and the KTA is very excited to be working with the Myanmar Yachting Federation to introduce the sport and to give you all the opportunity to take part in an event in a new country with us.
The Myanmar Wave Rider Cup is a multi-sport event which will include Windsurfing and open SUP racing, alongside the kite racing. The KTA Race Open will run both Formula and TT Classes each day of the event, with a possible fun Freestyle Expression session as an added bonus, if time and conditions allow.
It is anticipated that wind speeds will average between 12 – 16kts, so be sure to bring your big kites with you for this one.
The competition also falls over the Halloween weekend, so as well as all the action out on the water, you can expect an unforgettable Halloween closing party!
The event is being hosted by the Nqwe Saung Yacht Club and Resort, which is the first yacht club to be established in the Bay of Bengal. It however comes with high credentials after successfully hosting the 2013 SEA Games. The resort itself is 5 star, so you expect a top class experience and a highly professional service. The KTA management team and Ngwe Saung will be working closly together throughout to help make your visit Myanmar and your participation in the Myanmar Wave Rider Club 100% enjoyable.
There will be a USD15,000 equipment prize package up for grabs, for the KTA Race Open with further cash prizes also anticipated from the Myanmar Wave Rider Cup organisers. This will be confirmed or otherwise at a later date on the KTA Facebook event page, so be sure to follow the event there.
