The @ozonekites Torque 138 has got me hooked. Coming back for more action on this awesome performing freestyle/freeride board. The advanced bottom shapes create the right balance between skatieness/grip and amazingly soft landings. The outline and rocker of this sharp produced board combine to make this my fav setup. Yiiihhhaaaa.

When life throws you upside down and you feel like you're on a crossroad, it's time to reflect and take a deep dive inside. Look in the mirror to see who you really are, connect, and make it happen. It's never easy, that's the beauty of it. It's not about the destination but about the journey. Rock your world. 🀘

What an absolutely incredible weekend Wildeburg - the best festival ever. Despite being on crutches I don't stop living, loving, and fulfilling myself with the things I love. Adventuring with friends, meeting people, exploring new places, and dancing to amazing music. Thanks to all for the support and to the love of my life Nikki Lenten for always being there for/with me. πŸ‘Œβ€πŸ™

Playing with the wind is meditation. Being in the moment doing what feels good intuitively.

The Boogieloop aka frontroll megaloop is the absolute best feeling in the world. Such a controversial feeling to dive fwd into that frontal whilst keep pulling your backhand to loop that kite. It's pure trust and feeling what to do. My main tip is always to visualise over and over again and then to DO it. Of course practise in lighter conditions to get the feeling right but this move is a belter. I named it the boogieloop as you gotta be in the groove to pull this move. Boogie on. πŸ₯°

About | |
Born in Noordwijk in The Netherlands on March 30th, 1988, Ruben Lenten is a true β€˜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!
