Kai Lenny SUP on Jaw's, Maui, Hawaii

Spent a couple of weeks on Maui, hauling way too much camera gear out there.  Thought a major surfing competition was going to go off on Jaws, (Pe'ahi), but the 30 foot faces they needed for eight hours didn't happen.

Drove on out there anyway and found the sailboards working 20' waves, along with Maui local Kai Lenny on his paddle board, 2014 Stand Up World Tour Champion.

The surfers were constrained with the wind blowing off the top of the waves, but Kai had some killer runs until he broke his board.

Jaws just looks like a flat swell until the right waves and wind hit, then it's, well....then it's Jaws.
