How Crazy is this Month's Photo? Watch the Video to Really Find Out.
November 03, 2009


This month's photo showcases the style of pro rider Ruben Lenten. Not only does Ruben use his kite to launch him into the stratosphere, but he uses it to "loop" downwind and pull him for incredible distances. Enjoy!

A Stunning Display of Power...

This move – which is called the kiteloop – makes you feel like you're strapped to a rocket headed to the moon. It's impossible to describe how this feels, but try to imagine being shot from the worlds largest slingshot.

If you want to see the true power of this move, watch Ruben on YouTube with this video... It's amazing and does a great job illustrating the power involved.

It doesn't matter if you just want to cruise, surf, fly, or strap yourself to a rocket, kiteboarding will definitely give you your fix. Have you tried it yet?

Do you have a photo that absolutely trumps this one? How about one that captures the true beauty of kiteboarding? Or even one that is just plain fun?! If so, I'd love to give it a chance to be the next Photo of the Month – just send it to

In the Works...
