The story behind the Yellowstone river kiteboarding w/ Kai Lenny.

A year in the making. Watch the story behind Kai Lenny’s attempt kitesurfing the rapids of the Yellowstone River. All certainly didn’t go as planned. Watch out for those power lines Kai!

What’s it like to try kitesurfing rapids? “It was like juggling while standing on a bowling ball covered in Vaseline rolling down a tight rope.”—Kai Lenny

Is Kai Lenny the first to kitesurf rapids? That honour goes to Liquid Force designer Julien Fillion. He has been riding the class R2 and R3 rapids near Montreal, Canada for almost 10 years. Be sure to check out drone photos of Fillion riding the class R3 rapids in the next issue of Kitesurfing Magazine.
