And now for something a little different! Join Ruben Lenten for a very frank and insightful look into his life and how he feels about it right now. Ruben is of course one of the most popular kitesurfers on the planet but to go behind the scenes like this is a rare treat. He’s one of our favourite riders and at the end of the video he goes ballistic in those monster Cape Town winds!

“Cape Town is my 2nd home and I wouldn’t find it crazy if I ended up there at some point. But hey we will see!

What is for sure is that I feel very good in and around the Mother City, it gives me a lot… the nature, food, people and energy are all contributing to a great foundation. I always feel very grounded, loved and fully expressed in Cape Town, which enabled me to feel and experience the deep feelings I have for Nikki. She’s such an awesome person who makes me feel very good and she deserves to be loved to the fullest. I finally realized that in between all the hectic activities, to the point where I want to spend the rest of my life with her. Then I got a ring made and dropped on one knee, luckily she responded with a yes!! ☺ Nothing a couple of Red Bull Vodka’s couldn’t fix! Haha – just kiddin’

With so much love in the air Cape Town is the perfect place for riding and living. I always enjoy it and nail some of my best moves during sunset sessions. Pure bliss! The feeling I got when I landed the Megaloop 900 front was amazing, it went so effortlessly and smooth that it seemed like a dream. I love it when you commit to your feelings and fully enjoy the adventure!

Stay rad and ride hard!” – Ruben Lenten
