Kai Lenny SUP Surfs Ho’okipa

We haven’t seen Kai Lenny on a paddleboard in a while. Which is why this video is so rad. Kai arrives on the North Shore at Ho’okipa with his custom 7’6 BlurrV2 by Infinity SUP and explains why it’s the perfect board for the conditions.

Watch him slide, rip and attack the waves as he puts that SUP in critical sections of the wave. Get an up-close feel from his GoPro footage to ride the wave alongside him watching his weight shifts and agility throughout. Off the lip maneuvers, tail slides & floaters, it’s a walk in the park for an athlete of Kai’s caliber. Without even trying, Kai is giving a tutorial on how it’s done. His use of compression, paddle skills and rail-to-rail momentum puts this Infinity SUP in the right places for maximum glide and performance.

This video is excerpted from Kai’s “20@20” Vlog, Episode 19!  You can go to his YouTube channel to watch the whole thing and subscribe.
