KAPOW is an open house and a breeding place of talent and vibrant ideas. Our base in Nieuwland is not only a starting point, it is also a destination. It is the center of our operation, where everything and everyone comes together. Everyone is more than welcome with us!

During the summer, we are permanently open on Fridays from 4pm to 10pm.


Besides a shop, bar and surfclub (including surframp) we also have a music studio and a large blank space that can be filled according to the needs of the artist.


At the same time, we also go outdoors. We read what's going on in our neighborhood and city, and respond to it further. If we see a positive wave emerging, we want to surf on it!



At Kapow, we think it's important that young and passionate people have a say, too. That is why we have founded the 'Kapow Yung Board'. A new general assembly consisting of young enthusiastic creatives, who together will help determine the future of Kapow! 📈


Matthias aka Mistah Matt is the mastermind behind Kapow and describes himself as an artistic smooth operator. He first started organizing events in his local hometown Oostduinkerke, and later in Kinshasa (DRC), Trujillo (Peru) and Cebu (Philippines), to name a few. Since 2014, he runs ' the organic playground' in the center of Ghent.
