2016 Best Male Performance: Kai Lenny, M2O

Song: “005” by Gemini Club

It's hard not to give this award for this race. The Molokai 2 Oahu is the most prestigious race in our sport and always a feat whether you finish first or your finish last. Kai Lenny has won just about every race and accolade that one can achieve in this sport but until this year, an M2O victory eluded him. Not only did he find that victory this year but he also set a new course record against arguably the most stacked field of talent the Ka'iwi Channel has ever seen. For that, he more than deserves this award.
