Ruben Lenten feeling proud.
2 weeks ago

I was already proud of this promising talent when he won the Red Bull Megaloop Challenge. All eyes were on him when he was ripping but wiped out during last years King of the Air. Not giving up but making a full recovery and hanging onto what he loves... kiteboarding!! Look who's ripping it up again... BAM! Lasse Walker!!

Birthday
03/30/1988
Bio
Born in Noordwijk in The Netherlands on March 30th, 1988, Ruben Lenten is a true ‘Flying Dutchmen’ and renowned for being the most daring and radical kitesurfer in the world. In his view however, he has only scraped the surface in attempt- ing what is possible behind a kite.
Ruben began kiteboarding at the age of 12, rapidly making a name for himself, he turned pro at the age of 16. After many years successfully competing, Ruben decided to take on a different direction. His focus shifted to pushing and promoting the more extreme side of the sport. By creating content of his extreme kitesurfing sessions and organising events for his partners he puts the sport on the map like no-one else.
In August 2015 Ruben got diagnosed with an aggressive tumor inside of his chest. After a successful battle that inspired many, Ruben is now more determined than ever to do what he loves most; flying twice as high!
