Back in 2011 Ruben Lenten jumped the pier in Tarifa that separates the Atlantic from the Mediterranean, something that does not only require balls of steel but also the right kind of Levante wind. Even then, he had one very close call where he did not manage to clear it completely and nearly ended up on a stretcher. But this is the mega god of megaloops and after casually having kicked cancer in the ass, he decided to go back to do what he was born to do: Megaloop over the pier!
I cannot begin to describe how crazy that is and in how many ways this could have gone wrong, yet he just pops one right over the pier and then continues on his trip to the next destination. You know, as if it is no big deal, at all. What a super star!

While for most kitesurfers the mere thought of pulling the trigger gets their hearts racing, these boys are on a different level. Coming down from a missed kiteloop can hurt and we all know how hard water gets when you impact it like a dinosaur-killing-asteroid. But now imagine the same scenario but swap the water with land! Yes these guys have some massive brass Lent10 class balls!

Last year we got a call from an old friend, Rob Claisse, who created Progression and was fundamental to what now we consider the gold standard of kitesurf video tuition. He was looking for a spot that would offer reliable wind, blue skies, nice beaches and ideally something not too far from the UK. Not long after he arrived with a ton of equipment and pro riders Danny Morrice and Oli Sweeney, riding every day on their 2 weeks and getting loads of the filming done. Read about their trip on the Progression Blog and Rob is now in the finishing phase of editing the new videos for the Progression app so be sure to check it out too.
