First Music and Surf Festival to promote Kudat beaches
KUDAT: Sri Pelancongan Sabah, Sabah Tourism Board, in collaboration with the Sabah Surf Association and Kudat District Office will be organising the Music and Surf Fest @ The Tip Of Borneo at Tanjung Simpang Mengayau, here, on November 25 and 26.
Admission is free to the two-day event aimed at promoting the beautiful beaches of Kudat as a tourism destination for outdoor activities and surf culture, as well as to showcase the tradition and customs of the Rungus community.
Kudat is famous for its white sandy beaches, pristine aquamarine waters, and the panoramic views of the sea are a magnificent sight at Tanjung Simpang Mengayau.
“After seeing the potential in promoting Kudat as one of the best destinations to visit in Sabah, we have combined the annual Sunset Music Fest and Surf Festival into one big event to enhance the experience of the locals and travellers by allowing them to enjoy in this event and to know what Kudat has to offer,” said Zachary Mobijohn, General Manager of Sri Pelancongan Sabah Sdn. Bhd., adding that preparations including a site inspection and a trial of surfing activity was done by Sri Pelancongan Sabah and the Sabah Surf Association at Simpang Mengayau yesterday.
This family-friendly event will highlight a surfing tournament that is open to local and international participants, surf clinics - a surf lesson for those who want to give surfing a go, a sunset beach concert featuring popular local singers.
“Surfing in Sabah is relatively still a new adventure sport, but it is known globally. Our surf friends from places such as Japan, Brazil, Australia, and the UK, have been actively surfing in Kudat. The sizes of the waves here vary from one to six feet,” said Ivan Nicolai, president of Sabah Surf Association.
Prepare for the upcoming Music and Surf Festival at the Tip of Borneo.
