Ruben Lenten was 8 years old when he first started playing with power kites on the beach. Not long after, at the age of 12 he saw the first inflatable kite on the water. That’s when he knew what he wanted to do.
His parents supported his first set-up and ever since he has been on the water looking for stoke, progression and fun. The sport was still in its early days and Ruben’s drive and progression got him invited to be part of a team that had a sponsors, a manager, and a coach. Quickly reaching the top of the PKRA Freestyle World Tour with a 2nd place in the 2005 overall standings. Also that year we saw Ruben winning the Red Bull King of the Air in Maui, Hawaii. When being sidelined due to an injury early in the 2006 season Ruben quit competition riding and focused on what he loved doing most. Freeriding in extreme conditions and doing the most extreme big air moves. By leading and pioneering the way for big air kiteboarding and inventing the Megaloop Ruben has pushed the sport to new heights many times.
