Kai Lenny , the king of Foil !
From a little while now, Kai Lenny has tamed the swells on the high seas with his hydrofoil. The Hawaiian has passed the upper level by taking his craft to cross the 80 km between the main island of Hawaii and that of Maui. According to him it was “the longest route I have ever traveled in foil. I traveled nearly 80 km to cross the Aleluihaha.
His new project is to connect all the islands of Hawaii in foil, how to go from dream to reality in a few swings paddles…
