Butter on Axis

Posted August 5, 2014 by Brian Wennersten

We’re pleased to introduce you to a new rider on the Axis kiteboarding team and share his incredible story. Kevin Ruben, better known as Butter, is from the islands of St. Vincent and the Grenadines in the Caribbean. Butter caught the eye of the local kite school because of his athletic abilities on a skateboard and on the soccer pitch. He began driving the support boat for lessons and learned to kite. In just over two years, Butter has progressed to teaching kiting and landing an impressive amount of tricks, including slim chances, KGBs, and kite-loop 3s. While his skills stand out on the water, his infectious smile and boundless energy on the beach make him a great friend as well. We can’t wait to see where he can take his riding. We’ll certainly see more of him in the future!
