Kai Lenny

Lidt nyt verdenen rundt

Kai Lenny har sat et nyt move, inspireret af selveste Robby Naish? Hvem vil ikke gerne være den hurtigste – få hemmeligheden af vide når verdens hurtigste sejlere afslører, hvad der skal til!

PWA rookie of the year, Kai Lenny (Naish, Naish) has just released footage of a new move that he’s been working on over in Hawaii, aptly named the Kaino.

“I came up with this move after watching Robby Naish carve on the face of a wave and go back wind at lanes. Having seen Robby do that, I practiced it numerous times, and eventually thought the extra rotation just felt like it would be super natural to do. The move is similar to the Kono which is why I named it the Kaino, I just personalised it for doing it on a wave. If you want to have a go at it, you basically need to get some pop from the wave and go into a wave 360 rotation, then as you land you flip the sail. Whilst this is all happening the wave is pushing you towards the beach. It is a really fun move!”

Looks pretty technical to us, but definitely the best way to pick off the set of the day at your local break! Turning round has never looked so good!


Recently we asked a bunch of the World’s best slalom racers to give us some top tips on going fast. We didn’t expect too much from the guys as we’re pretty sure they would rather keep most of their top secret tips to themselves for at least a little while longer! Anyway, read on, and learn what you can from the following.

Antoine Albeau (JP, NeilPryde)

“Sail, train, and tune. That’s all I’m saying…”

Finian Maynard (RRD, NeilPryde)

“I highly suggest paying a lot of attention to the downhaul of the sail, regardless of whether it is a race sail or a wave sail, and everything in-between. Modern sails have huge differences in performance when not properly rigged. The top pros in all disciplines are continually checking and re-checking their settings, sometimes up to 4-5 times a day, making sure everything is in order. Another tip is to only make small adjustments to windsurfing gear at any one time, nothing drastic, or you’ll get confused.”

Cyril Moussilmani (Starboard, North)

“Train. A lot.”


Peter Volwater (Fanatic, MauiSails)

“My top tip for some one trying to go faster is to tune their equipment well and try to take the right sail for the conditions. Don’t sail too overpowered and definitely not underpowered. Sail with at least one other friend who is as fast or faster than you, then you can work on both your technique and make changes to your sail/board/fin settings together. Also only change one thing at a time whilst leaving any other variables the same.”

Steve Allen (Starboard, Severne)

“Always try to train or sail with someone faster than yourself.”

Micah Buzianis (JP, NeilPryde)

“Simple, practice, tweak and tune. Water time is the key, and quality water time makes this key work.”

There you have it, we said don’t expect too much!
