Ruben Lenten Kitesurfing in Lago Calima, Colombia

Red Bull Under My Wing: Ruben Lenten 2011 a Kitesurfing video by keltron

Ruben Lenten, the king of the mega loop was in Lago Calima in Colombia for the Red Bull Under My Wings event.  View video above.

Lago Calima is the second windiest lake in the world.  In other words, it gets over 360 days of wind per year.

Born in Noorwijk in The Netherlands on March 30th, 1988, Ruben Lenten is world-renowned for his daring and incredibly acrobatic kiteboarding. He is known as the "King of the Megaloop".

View video below to see what a Megaloop means.  Basically, you are looping the kite at the apex of the jump.  Doesn't sound all that complicated or dangerous, but believe me, it is one of the hardest kite tricks to master and it can be very dangerous.
