Kai Lenny: riding the world's first foil bodyboard

We've seen him surfing, windsurfing, kitesurfing, and SUPing. But now, Kai Lenny is also giving bodyboarding a go.

The waterman from Maui became the first person ever to ride a foil bodyboard. Lenny, 24, installed a hydrofoil on a boogie board, and gave it a go in small waves.

"I recently injured my ankle super bad while windsurfing a few weeks ago and have been frothing to get back in the water. So, I put my energy into making myself a hydro foiling bodyboard, also known as the boogie foil!" explained Kai Lenny.

Apparently, it works. The foil bodyboard glides across the water and the water like a knife cutting through butter. The system is not yet perfect.

Maybe a smaller foil and small tweaks in the position of the underwater wing can improve the foil bodyboarding experience. But the seed has been planted. Will the industry explore its potential?

Rob Bain, Layne Beachley, and Dave Macaulay have taken out the Azores Airlines World Masters Championship in the Grand Masters, Women's Masters and Men's Masters divisions held in good three-foot surf at Praia de Santa Barbara.
