Kai Lenny drops in at Bells Beach
Lenny couldn't resist the chance to session Bells Beach
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 8 November, 2012 : - - Champion Hawaiian Stand Up Paddle surfer Kai Lenny made a surprise hit and run visit to Bells Beach today and despite the surf being only 0.5m (1 to 2 feet), Lenny could not resist the opportunity to sample the waves. 'Bells is such a special venue in surfing, there's been epic competitive battles go down here and I've watched the event at Easter on TV and I know what a special lace it is' said Lenny.
"Even though today was small it was super fun and actually good practice for me as shortly head to Brazil for a major event and the waves there will also be small.... I know when it breaks bigger that this place would be ideal for Stand Up Paddle - for short boards it sometimes get's a little thick through the mid stage of the wave but on a Stand Up those sections are ideal for hitting hard with big manoeuvres - It would be amazing to one day see a high level world tour Stand Up Paddle event here as well!"
Shortly after his surf today Lenny spoke at Surfworld Surfing Museum in Torquay then he was off to Adelaide on his whirlwind tour of Australia which will last about a week in total. The 20 year -old Hawaiian has already won two World Titles in Stand Up Paddle and his skills across Stand Up Paddle, Kite Surfing and Wind Surfing are world renown.
