SUP magazine’s River Life Road Trip

Welcome to SUP magazine’s River Life Road Trip presented by Nexen. During the next three weeks, SUP mag videographer Tom Hanny will take us to some of the best whitewater events in the West. This week he’s at the GoPro Mountain Games where he got the chance to surf the river with Hawaiian Kai Lenny.

It doesn’t matter what kind of current—rip tide or eddy line—lenny knows how to paddle it all with grace. Check out his first ever river surf at the Glewood Wave, a ripping river feature on the Colorado River an hour west of Vail. Ken Hoeve, a gifted paddler in his own right, gives Lenny a few tips and the talented Hawaiian waterman does the rest, putting his rails to work on one of the best river waves in the country. Enjoy.
