A young surfing celebrity who is already a legend in his own lifetime spent the day on Watergate beach in Newquay last week.
Kai Lenny, seventeen-year-old Hawaiian, guest of Skindog Surf School and sponsored by Oxbow Surf Wear Company, ripped up the Cornish waves with the locals while offering surfing tips to members of Skindogs surfing school and any other members of the public looking for expert advice and tips.
A confident, friendly and relaxed Kai was more than happy to hang out and joke around with all who came to see him, including local surfers, press, members of the Joe Way Appeal and of course the younger surfing enthusiasts. Towards the end of the day and before his last surf at Watergate beach he carried out a signing and photo session for all of his avid fans. When asking Kai about his time in Newquay, Kai said; “It’s been great, we’ve been up to the flow rider and I’ve meet some really cool people. The surf was a little flat today but it’s always good to get in the water”
Surfing prodigy Kai Lenny is coming to the UK next week; 15th and 16thJune. At just 17 years old, Kai is a world-class surfer and he’s making the journey from Hawaii to the UK to see you!
Making a big name for himself in the surfing, windsurfing and kite boarding world, Kai spends every minute possible on the water; at only 17 years old it’s pretty impressive just how big and how well he rides.
If you’re into surfing and want to see one of the greatest surfers, now’s your chance. Kai’s first stop in the UK will be in Weymouth/Portland on Tuesday 15th June, Windtek and Second Wind Surf Shops, where he is looking forward to meeting some hardcore British surfers. He will be there from 11am until 3pm for a signing session and interviews, so make sure you don’t miss out.
