Kai Lenny: water sports superstar.

Kiteboarding Kai attempts to set new record


Red Bull athlete and water sports superstar Kai Lenny will arrive in Milwaukee on Thursday and attempt to kiteboard from Milwaukee to Chicago starting Friday morning at sunrise.

Lenny -- who just turned 18 on Oct. 8 -- is an accomplished surfer, kiteboarder, long distance paddler, stand-up paddler, tow surfer, canoe surfer and windsurfer.

If he completes his goal, he will be the first person to ever kiteboard from Milwaukee to Chicago. Kiteboarding -- also called kitesurfing -- is a surface water sport in which the wind pulls a rider through the water on a small surfboard / kiteboard.

"I just want to keep having fun, take it in stride," says Lenny.
