Cape Town, February 2, 2012 – Every summer Ruben Lenten (NED), professional Kiteboarder and King of the Megaloop, descends on Cape Town for the prime summer and wind conditions.
This year sees Ruben, together with his friend and fellow Kiteboarder Aaron Hadlow, challenge 24 amateur kiteboarders to compete in the LEN10 Megaloop Challenge in Big Bay, Blouberg .
Big air equals a big score
“A megaloop is when you go full circle with the kite – right through the power zone. As judges, Aaron and I will be looking at the style, height, length, enthusiasm and speed each kiteboarder executes their Megaloop with”, says Ruben. In true kiteboarding tradition the best wipeout will be also rewarded.
As the competition requires wind speeds upwards of 30 knots a window period from the 16th to the 26th February 2012 has been secured to ensure optimal wind conditions..
The winner on the day will take home R10,000 and a photo shoot with renowned action sports photographer Craig Kolesky.
