Kai Lenny wins the Sydney Downwinder

November 5, 2012

Kai Lenny has just taken out the Narrabeen Downwind race, which was event #4 of the 2012 Sydney Ocean Series. On day two of his whirlwind Aussie promo tour, the newly minted SUP World Series champion overcame a determined local field to claim victory on the modified course in just over an hour. The event was originally set to be an 18km downwinder, but unfavourable winds forced organisers to set up an impromptu circuit race instead. Kai sealed his win using his Javelin LE with flawless transition work as he navigated his way through the waves, put in a blistering BOP-style transition and then flew back out the back. Nice work Kai!
