Battle of the Sund: only kites are allowed in this clash

Two hundred kiteboarders will cross the Strait of Oresund, between Sweden and Denmark, on the 16th August, 2014.

Race and freestyle kiteboarders are invited to rewrite history. What once was the scene of a big naval battle between Swedish and Danish is now the spot of an extreme sailing challenge.

Riders will try to get their kites up in the sky for 40 kilometers (25 miles), starting on Ribersborg Beach, Malmo, touching the island of Flakfortet on the Danish side, and returning to Sweden.

The 2014 Red Bull Battle of the Sund invites everyone with more than 15 years to kite in two classes: Women (Twin Tip and Open) and Men (Twin Tip and Open).

The winner will be declared "Ruler of the Sund". The Strait of Oresund once had the world's largest offshore wind farm.

It was the year of the first soft landing on the Moon. In 1966, "Peanuts" went surfing. And skateboarding. Or at least, they tried to ride a few waves through mind surfing.
