A Malolo is the Hawaiian name for Flying Fish. And that’s what Kai Lenny has been turning into over the past 2 years with the new generation of SUP and surf foiling! Almost all the footage we see of Kai at the moment is on a foil. Foils have certainly got better, more efficient and easier to use over the past year. No doubt thanks to riders like Kai Lenny helping that. Just check out the SUP board shapes Kai is riding now. Relatively high volume boards for their size with big beveled rails and probably very light in weight.
Its been an amazing journey with Kai and his foils over the last few years, but this latest inter-island journey could just be the beginning!
A trans-ocean journey will be attempted in the future by foil for sure. But the question is… who by? when? and where?
