Watch: Kai Lenny // The best big wave season so far
Kai Lenny called season 2018/19 the "best big wave season so far" and you've gotta assume he's talking about his own performance, not the quality of the waves. Jaws, Nazare, and Mavericks all had slow seasons, however, when they did break 26-year old Lenny put on a Laird-like show.
This vid is full of so many moments, split-second highlights that on their own could support an ordinary surfer through a lifetime of recollection, that the whole thing could become passe, until, that is, you realise Lenny is doing all this stuff - controlled airdrops, backflips, barrels - in waves that are bigger than most of us will ever surf.
It takes some perspective to comprehend it, especially when Lenny says he's "only just starting to scratch the surface of what is possible."
