Kai Lenny Takes the Win in Chicago

July 6, 2012

After two days of intense racing, Naish’s Kai Lenny took it all home at the Stand Up World Series Race in Chicago, IL. After being edged out of first by just hundredths of a second on the beach sprint race on Day 1, Kai reversed the result on Day 2 by winning the long distance race on his Naish 12’6″ far ahead of Connor Baxter. This left both Kai and Connor tied for first, so it came down to a tie-breaker paddle. Kai won the tie-breaker which made him the overall winner of the Chicago stop of the SUP World Series.

Congratulations Kai!
