Is Kai Lenny’s Giant Downwind Carrot Strapped to His Back the Future?

I LOVE that Kai continues to experiment—to try anything—including strapping a huge inflatable carrot from Lou Wainman to help propel him forward on his foil. Video by Ryan Johnson “RJ” ( on Instagram)

“Supposedly,” Kai says in this instagram video post, “it catches the wind and propels you forward.”

Basically the idea of the carrot is it catches just enough wind to help you catch up to the next swell.
