2009 PKRA Germany

Around 7:00 am, there was an overcast sky with moderate winds coming from the west.  A couple of hours later during the 9:30 am skippers meeting, low laying storm clouds brought heavy rainsqualls and strong powerful winds which would later in the day progress to approximately 40 knots. The temperature averaged 19°Celsius.

It was a perfect wind condition for the kite loop king, Ruben Lenten who was yet again “On The Loose” showing off his super sick mega loops to the fascinated crowd of spectators on the beach.
