Video: Kai Lenny Sends Two Backflips On One Wave


We've said it before, and we'll certainly say it again: Kai Lenny is an animal. Whether he's surfing big waves, hydrofoiling, SUPing, windsurfing or kitesurfing, he always manages to put down a mind-bending performance. His run during the "expression session" of 2019 Rincon Classic is no exception.

This video, courtesy of The Inertia, shows just how much style Lenny can squeeze into a single wave. For just about everyone else, a single backflip would be an impressive stunt. Not for Kai. Seemingly effortlessly, he floats two backflips, the first so smoothly that you might blink and miss it.

Your COVID Masks Are Already Ending Up in the Ocean

Your COVID Masks Are Already Ending Up in the Ocean

I’m not even going to start about my views on people not wearing masks during this lovely time were all going through, but COME ON - do they really need to end up in the ocean too? Kook of the Day points out the obvious in their recent post: if your mask or protective gloves end up in the ocean, you’re a kook. Please dispose of your gross germ-infested mask properly. Like the trash can. We don’t need dolphins and seabirds dealing with more of our human problems because of your laziness.
