It’s funny. For as open surfing has recently become to a diverse quiver – from logs to retro twin fins to performance shapes – surfers are oft uncomfortable with derivatives. SUPing, foiling, kite boarding, and windsurfing are activities that cop a lot of shit. Kai Lenny is a guy that not only doesn’t care, he’s made it his personal ambition to reach the pinnacle of performance in each discipline. And dammit if the guy doesn’t command respect.
The trailer for Kai’s newest film, Paradigm Lost, is not only a pretty bit of 4K imagery, it’s seamless high fidelity shredding in every way imaginable to stand sideways on a board on a wave.
