Paradigm Lost – A Surf Film by Kai Lenny | Official 4K Trailer

Some people are simply at-home in the water; Kai Lenny is definitely one of those people. It's always a pleasure to watch these people (even better to be with them) in the water, as they're never fighting the elements but instead they're drawing and using the power and force. This creates that great dynamic when a person can really charge, fly surge with the speed and force of nature. This…

Luckily the gear and surfing expertise are getting better all the time, because this is allowing people to continue to find and manage to surf larger, thicker, faster…
