Destined to become a waterman - “kai” literally means “ocean” in Hawaiian.
Kai Lenny has proved himself to be the world’s greatest waterman to date. His groundbreaking achievements in kiteboarding, windsurfing, stand-up paddleboarding, and foil boarding speak for themselves.
The youngest person ever to enter the Surfers’ Hall of Fame, Lenny is a seven-time world stand-up paddle champion (SUP) and two-time winner of the SUP pro final in Hawaii. In 2020, he won the epic Nazaré Tow Surfing Challenge. Nothing stops an icon.
