Kai Lenny opened a new chapter in the history of surfing. He rode a 5’6” foil surfboard in open ocean swells for several miles, off the coast of Maui, in Hawaii.

Forget long flat spells, and unsurfable wind swells. Thanks to Kai Lenny’s ongoing technological adventures, it will be possible to ride a surfboard in places where we thought there were no surfing opportunities.

What if the entire coastline next to you became a surf spot? What if you could ride small wind swells 150 feet (45 meters) off the shore?
