One of the world’s most accomplished multi-disciplined watermen and TAG Heuer ambassador Kai Lenny demonstrated his technical Stand-Up Paddle (SUP) expertise in the heart of London on the River Thames on Friday.
As the London heatwave continued with highs of 30 degrees, the River Thames remained a far cry from his native Maui. Kai kept his cool throughout the blissful ride against the epic back drop of the London Eye.
Kai started his surfing career at the early age of five, and went on to master kitesurfing before he reached 10, in keeping with the TAG Heuer ethos of #DontCrackUnderPressure Kai’s talent and determination on the water has not faulted. Kai has since gone on to achieve major recognition in 2012 with first place at the Hawaii Island Finals for SUP-pro, and has continued to prove that he is one of the most skilled riders of oversized surf on any craft, winning the Stand-Up Paddle world title six times.
In true pioneer style Kai sported a TAG Heuer Aquaracer; an innovation since 1892 when Edouard Heuer filed the first patent for a watertight case in the history of watchmaking. An instant success, the Aquaracer collection in its modern iteration has become a sports watch beloved by men and women in equal measure since it’s conception in 2003.
TAG Heuer is known for consistently pushing the boundaries and today Kai Lenny demonstrated a skill to surpass expectation with ease and elegance in all waters!
