    Ruben Lenten - My Most Painful Kiteboarding Accident

      Cinematography

    A few days ago we received information about Ruben Lenten's serious leg injury – during the session in Barcelona, Ruben hit water while performing megaloop. You'll get to know more about the accident from the today's video. Fortunately, the champion still has positive attitude.

    Ruben Lenten: Here is a cool video that shows you more about my most painful kitesurfing accident recently in Barcelona. I broke my leg badly with multiple fractures that needed a proper fixing. In this video I hope to inspire you to remain calm and happy no matter the situation. Dealing with challenges can be hard but I always tell myself, it can always be worse, and start looking at the benefits right away. It works for me, and perhaps can help you get through your next adversity easier. Thanks for all the support.

      Lewis Crathern from England is especially famous for his breakneck jumps over piers in Worthing and Brighton.
       
      Lewis was taking part in Red Bull King of the Air 2016 and, unfortunately, suffered a very serious injury. While performing a mega loop with a backroll, his kite stalled and Lewis hit the water falling 65 feet.
       
      No brain damage occurred, there were no fractures and no damage of the internal organs. However, doctors decided to put Lewis into an induced coma until his condition is stable.
       
      Aaron Hadlow, the winner of Red Bull King of the Air 2016 said: "I couldn't help but think of one of my best mates missing out on the final and ending up in the hospital".
