Kai Wins SUP Championship

HILO, HAWAII (HawaiiNewsNow) – Kai Lenny wrapped up the first Stand Up World Tour Championship Thursday winning the final heat at Honolii Beach Park on the Big Island. "I'm really stoked," said the 18-year old. "It feels great because I worked my whole life to achieve this goal; but I still have so much to learn. It's only the beginning and I want to be ready for next year."  The maui native won two of the five events and placed highly at the three other events, which were spread out between France, Tahiti, Brazil and Hawaii.
