Kai Lenny Is Bringing the Hydrofoil (and Surfing) To New Heights

In just a couple months, Kai Lenny crossed the 50-mile channel between the Big Island and Maui with his foil board to fight plastic pollution. He won the first event of the APP World Tour. And he landed the cover of Outside Magazine. Oh, and earlier this winter he stomped a giant air at Jaws. That air will not be forgotten. Ever. But most recently, he’s come into focus for his exploits on a hydrofoil surfboard, a tool that enables him to enjoy the ocean no matter the conditions. He literally rides invisible swell beneath the surface of the ocean for miles. It’s breathtaking. One of those things you have to see to comprehend.
