Kai's Favorite Boards

Kai Lenny

Kai Lenny grew up on Maui, born into a family that was at the beach all the time. He fell in love with the ocean at an early age, starting with surfing. On Maui, in order to be a surfer every single day, you have to adapt to the elements. Kai learned to windsurf, kitesurf, stand up paddle, tow, foil board, canoe, and bodysurf to supplement is lifestyle. In 2010 Kai became the first ever Stand Up Paddle World Champion. In 2011, he took the title once again. Among Kai's many achievements, he is one of the best in the world out in the lineup at Jaws. From his paddle surfing, tow surfing, windsurfing, and kite surfing he is the only surfer we know that can do these four sports in one day at one wave. He has been riding SOS surfboards since 2009 and you can see by the photos of his quiver, he has everything from a 5'2" to a 10'0" gun for Jaws.
