Kai Lenny Goes “Flying”

Maui waterman Kai Lenny is well-known for pushing the boundaries. Whether paddling into skyscraper-sized waves at Jaws or crossing the Hawaiian channels on any and all watercraft, Lenny is primed for any challenge. In this latest video, he goes hydrofoil wakesurfing on a tiny board that’s well under four feet. While he goes sans paddle in this edit, it still provides an interesting insight into what it feels like to “fly” above the water.


13-year-old Finn Spencer proves hydrofoils are the future of downwinding.
