Kai Lenny Paddles Into Jaws

The big wave surf­ing reef break on the island of Maui rev­er­ent­ly known as “Jaws” has more than earned its badass moniker. Waves there are rumored to reach up to 120ft and move as fast as 30mph. The waves at Jaws have been rid­den by surf­ing pio­neers like Laird Hamil­ton and Dave Kala­ma. In this video, 19-year-old pad­dler Kai Lenny takes his own attempt at badassery — and succeeds.
