If you are anything like me and have tried to capture some footage with the Go-Pro, it always turns out to be bit of a disappointment. Yet, I get online and see dozens of really good videos of Go-Pro action and the latest clip I have seen is one of the best yet. In the featured video below you can see Kai Lenny taking on Jaws and the footage of his session is breath taking.
Kai Lenny is a true waterman in every sense of the word, he is a regular big wave surfer, a brilliant Paddleboarder, a keen kitesurfer and windsurfer and often enjoys tow in sessions around his hometown of Maui. This particular clip shows Kai riding some bombs at the revered big wave spot Jaws.
The action is recorded beautifully, and it is impossible to watch without becoming fully immersed and weaving and bobbing under the lip along with Kai. I winced a couple of times as the lip closed down behind him like a 20-ton guillotine. It is not all about perfect waves and great rides as you also see Kai getting pitched and the ensuing set waves bearing down on him.
Loose yourself for just over 4 minutes in the video below and then let us know if your Go-Pro footage ever matches up to this great edit by Kai?
