Kai Lenny

Legendary waterman & seven time stand-up-paddling world champion


He’s had an impressive lineup of mentors: windsurfing legend Robby Naish and big-wave veterans Laird Hamilton and Dave Kalama have been some of Kai’s most dynamic teachers.  Kai has paddled the gruelling 32-mile Molokai to Oahu route many times, is a veteran on the Professional Windsurfing Association World Wave Tour, has been runner-up at the Kite Surf Pro World Championships, and he’s won the SUP World Title seven times and counting.

Yet through it all, he remains modest and humble. “All of my sports are surfing based,” says Kai. “My favorite thing in the world is riding a wave, so as long as I’m riding a wave, I’m happy.”

Kai is an innovator and visionary, on and off of the water.  With so many accolades already to his credit - and many more to come - Kai knows there is more to life than sport.  Success at such an early age has given Kai a platform to create awareness and make an impact for causes close to his heart. Because of this this, sport itself and his performance on the water has more meaning than simply being about him.  The "Positively Kai" initiative captures the spirit of how he lives his life and works to make the world a better place by inspiring the youth of Hawaii creating campaigns to keep the ocean healthy.  Kai is a world-changing human being.
