Good things take time. After 3 years of testing almost every kite on the market, I’m so stoked to have found this great brand to move forward with who share the same vision and above all passion. Let’s fly, Ozone Kites.
Ozone is an awesome company owned and run by people who ride hard and fly high. Over the past 20 years, Ozone has been on a mission with its own factories and a team of professionals innovating, testing and developing the best kitesurf and snow kites, paragliders, and speedwings in the world.

I have been kitesurfing for over 18years and this is what I want to do for the rest of my life. Every session there’s something new to enjoy and learn, it never ends. This feeling is just amazing and playing with different gear and setups always brings new opportunities and feelings. Like with our brand new user-friendly high-performance kite, the Amp. This kite has stolen my heart and I’m so excited to fully express myself on this awesome kite along with the Torque board.

At Ozone they know how to build gear, that’s for sure. I’ve been blown away by their capabilities and innovations thus far. With these great products and this amazing team, we’re focused to grow Ozone worldwide and give more and more people the feel and performance of Ozone. I’m looking forward to visiting your home spots, riding together and having some fun. That’s what it’s all about.

Big up to the whole Lieuwe Boards family for having me onboard. Thanks for developing the great Oceana board, the fun sessions and support. It’s been an awesome ride and vibe but the time has come to move onto my next chapter. Wishing you all the best. You guys rock!

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!
