Kai Lenny is leaving Naish after 16 years; where to next for the superstar of stand up paddling?


Let the speculation begin…

And here’s Kai’s announcement from a few hours ago:

Words cannot begin to express the amount of gratitude I have towards Robby Naish and his company Naish for the incredible support I have experienced over the past 16 years. Naish was my first major sponsor and has been with me through thick and thin, the good times and the bad, as well as being there throughout my journey of fulfilling childhood dreams of becoming a world champion athlete. It is with a heavy heart that I will no longer be a team rider for Naish. This has been one of the toughest decisions I have had to make thus far in my career, but I am excited for the road ahead as I stay committed to becoming the best athlete and person I can be. 🏄⚡️💯 @naishsup @naishsails @naish_kiteboarding @naishfoiling @michisilence @robbynaishus1111
