Hannah Whiteley Rides with Best

Hannah Whiteley needs no introduction. She is three-time British freestyle kitesurfing champion and one of the most exciting prospects on the international kiteboarding scene. She has also become the first kitesurfer to be featured on CNN’s Human to Hero, one of the most prestigious action sports shows today.

After a couple years riding for Wainman Hawaii, Hannah Whiteley has decided to join forces with the guys at Best Kiteboarding. She has become the perfect fit for the Extract team joining Ruben Lenten and Lewis Crathern on a quest to push the sport of kiteboarding to the next level.

The guys at Best are stoked to have her on the crew, as 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!”

Hannah is also happy to be part of the Best family: “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.

Things have been going pretty well for me over the last couple of months. I’ve 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.

Today I’m really happy and excited to announce I’m now working with Best Kiteboarding, joining there elite team of athletes and pushing myself and the sport to new heights. I’m stoked to be riding the new Extract Series alongside my idols Ruben & Lewis. I would like to thank Wainman Hawaii for all their support over the past 3 years and helping me get to where I am today. I wish them all the best in future.”
