TAKING ON JAWS —TRAINING A WATERMAN—

Pe'ahi, Maui is home to one of the world's most legendary big surf breaks – better known as Jaws. The world's best surfers flock here in the hope of riding some of the biggest waves in the world. Kai Lenny grew up with it in his backyard. He uses Jaws to hone his skills and to build the stamina to face whatever the ocean throws at him.

KAI LENNY —BORN ON THE WAVES—

His first name means “Ocean” in Hawaiian. His middle name is actually Waterman. Kai Lenny was destined to live his life on the water. Born and raised on Maui, Kai first surfed at 4. He grew up watching and learning from legendary watermen like Laird Hamilton and Dave Kalama. Inspired by his mentors and the incredible surf culture of Hawaii, he’s developed into a world-class surf athlete in multiple events and has already won six Stand Up Paddleboard World Championships.
