This week, Best announced the addition of extreme athlete Hannah Whiteley to its team. Hannah, known for riding hard and going big, is what Best feels is a perfect fit for the Extract team joining Ruben Lenten and Lewis Crathern seeking out the most insane stunts and pushing the sport of kiteboarding to the next level.

Best team Manager Lia Feriancek states, “Best Kiteboarding is very happy to have Hannah join our team. She exudes lots of positive energy and is always going for it, which I love to see in our athletes. Having Hannah join the Extract team seems to be the perfect complement to join Ruben and Lewis, I’m looking forward to all the crazy extreme mayhem to come!”

“Another great addition to the Best Kiteboarding team, Hannah Whitely, is an always enthusiastic and energized chick that knows how to ride hard. She’s beautiful and knows how to play with her fear. Our new gear will enable her to go even bigger, so she can continue to inspire more chicks to ride with us,” states Best team Extract rider Ruben Lenten.

After her first sessions on her new gear, she said, “I’m over the moon to be riding with Best, the performance and quality of the gear really is simply the ‘Best’. I feel totally in control on the water. My riding is becoming so much stronger on my new quiver of Extracts kites and TS’s. For me, one of the greatest feelings in kitesurfing is the thrill of progressing. With my gear performing at such a high level, I’m confident my riding will too.

Whiteley said things have been going pretty well for her over the last couple of months. She has managed to score a magazine cover and put out a new video from Brazil.

“It’s been great to have been riding and promoting the Wainman gear as it has helped me to progress to this point in my riding and career, she said. “Today I’m really happy and excited to announce I’m now working with Best Kiteboarding, joining their elite team of athletes and pushing myself and the sport to new heights.”
