Kai Lenny may look fresh faced and as though he would be better suited in a boy band, but don’t let his youthful good looks deceive you. Kai is like a Gremlin when he comes into contact with water as he becomes a freak of nature and can seemingly master any waterborne craft with ease. It doesn’t matter if it is a kiteboard, surfboard, windsurf or Sup – he is an expert at all.
The latest clip we bring you, although nearly a year old, is still pretty revolutionary and shows Kai out on the waters of central California. Although a relatively small paddleboard, Kai pumps and drives it along the wave, as though it is a 5’10” shortboard, performing powerful off the lips, aerials and the elusive air reverse.
Whilst the Paddleboard isn’t everyone’s “cup of tea” it is impossible to deny that Kai handles his SUP better than most people handle their surfboard. When you see him pulling off the air reverse it is hard not to be impressed and wonder what will be the next move he conquers. The video below shows Kai at play, feel free to tell us what move you would like to see him attempt next?
