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.
