Well, in any case, it sucks to see it, I'm probably wrong and don't know the circumstances anyway...maybe Lenten is a hero. I guess I'm jaded from seeing kiteboarders use most any opportunity to promote themselves or get a cool shot or vid...

Well,

It may or may not be morally reprehensible, depending on how you see it, but it does seem to be in poor taste.

I don't think he was trying to use it to his advantage quite the contrary it seems he was trying to draw attention to the issue to help out the whale.


Thanks to all the positive feedback Ruben is doing a "Drawing Attention Tour". Here's a teaser pic, where he wishes to bring attention to the homeless during this holiday season:
