Rehab is much tougher than I anticipated. Me going from all positive and stoked to questioning everything and feeling down and out. Crazy mental process. Keeping my head up for sure but it ain't easy and sorry if I made it sound like it is or was going to be easy. It comes with ups and downs just like everything. Focus on what I can do. Baby steps. Move. Adapt. Ride. Let's go.

To answer your question when will I be back on the water? Whenever I'm ready. 🌈

The Mystic LEN10 boardshort is 👌. I love the look, fit, and feel for on and off the water.

About | |
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!
