Meet the world’s first ever self-propelled hydrofoil surfboard. Who better to test it than Kai Lenny?

Kai Lenny paddled into a left-hand roller, kicked out, pumped his hydrofoil back out to sea, and caught the next wave.

“What I really love about the hydrofoil is that it just opens a whole new world of surf spots. Most of the waves in the world aren’t that great, but you get on a hydrofoil and all of a sudden it feels like you’re riding a perfect wave at Malibu,” explains Lenny.
