Kai Lenny is one of the most interesting young stars in surfing, forgoing traditional boards on his waterman quests. Recently he has been pioneering open ocean foilboard crossings, in which he uses a board with a water foil attached to ride mirco-waves across large distances.
Now he is using a combination of all his talents to cross the open channels between the Hawaiian Islands to bring attention to the pollution of these waters. At each crossing location, he is cleaning up one beach to bring awareness to both traditional pollution and micro-plastics. It's rad to see both Kai Lenny and Red Bull put money and resources behind this problem.
