  1. Cleaning up on Earth Day

    Saturday marks Earth Day, an event that has been on the calendar for nearly half-a-century. This year, it is focusing on environmental and climate literacy, and two athletes in very different parts of the United States have been doing their bit to raise awareness. 1). Kai Lenny participates in Downwind Voyage for Change in Hawaii, USA on 27 March, 2017 @ Andy Mann / Red Bull Content Pool Surfer Kai Lenny took to the waters and shorelines of Hawaii’s big islands for a plastic clean-up, while Dane Jackson led a team of fellow kayakers in Tennessee to fill five rafts with rubbish ranging from 40 tyres to 60 roof shingles in just a three-mile stretch of the Nolichucky River. 2). Kai Lenny performs a kite surfing demo at Downwind Voyage for Change in Hawaii, USA on 29 March, 2017 @ Andy Mann / Red Bull Content Pool For both men, the water has very much been their home, Jackson growing up on the aforementioned river, while Lenny is Hawaiian-born and remains a Maui inhabitant. Both were appalled by the waste they were faced with. 3). Dane Jackson works with with volunteers from the University of Tennessee Knoxville Outdoor Program and USA Raft to clean up the Nolichucky River in Tennessee, USA on March 18 and 19, 2017 @ Lucas Gilman/Red Bull Content Pool Lenny, helped by locals across six islands, explained: “We can clean up all day but we’ve got to figure out a way to stop the flow [of trash] and put a plug in it. “Riding those waters, I learned how much trash is in the ocean. Now, I really want to bring awareness to it and make it a preventable thing.” 4). Kai Lenny participates in Downwind Voyage for Change in Hawaii, USA on 29 March, 2017 @ Andy Mann / Red Bull Content Pool To raise awareness, he travelled – occasionally in perilous waters - between the islands in all manner of water vessels from his hydrofoil board, to a kite surf to a traditional paddle board and a plain old sailing boat for the final leg. On every major island, he and his team cleaned up one beach in the hope of riding it of micro plastics. 5). Kai Lenny performs a hydrofoil demo at Downwind Voyage for Change in Hawaii, USA on 28 March, 2017 @ Andy Mann / Red Bull Content Pool As he said: “It’s all in the name of protecting our oceans and bringing awareness to the pollution that is micro plastics on our shorelines and in our seas.” 6). Kai Lenny participates in Downwind Voyage for Change in Hawaii, USA on 28 March, 2017 @ Andy Mann / Red Bull Content Pool For Jackson, the pollution just below the surface of his home river was equally devastating to see close-up. The 23-year-old was joined by 10 local kayakers and raft guides for two laps of a three-mile stretch. “I’ve spent my entire life in or around the river and it’s so mind blowing that so many people just throw their trash in the river,” said Jackson, one of kayaking’s biggest names, at the conclusion of his river clean-up. 7). Dane Jackson works with with volunteers from the University of Tennessee Knoxville Outdoor Program and USA Raft to clean up the Nolichucky River in Tennessee, USA on March 18 and 19, 2017 @ Lucas Gilman/Red Bull Content Pool “Throwing river in the trash affects everything from wildlife to humans. Trash affects the entire ecosystem of a river. Some waste, like motor oil, is completely toxic and other stuff, like plastic bags, just sticks around forever. “It really comes down to ignorance and laziness because it just doesn’t make any sense to throw trash in a river." 8). Dane Jackson works with with volunteers from the University of Tennessee Knoxville Outdoor Program and USA Raft to clean up the Nolichucky River in Tennessee, USA on March 18 and 19, 2017 @ Lucas Gilman/Red Bull Content Pool 9).

  2. Kai Lenny

    In the Hawaiian language Kai means ocean, and Kai Lenny certainly lives up to his name. Born on Maui to parents who loved to surf and windsurf, Kai has grown up at the beach. Kai learned how to surf at the age of 4, windsurf at 6, stand up surf at 7 and kite surf at 9. Learning how to do these sports all happened naturally, and from it grew his love affair with the ocean and the waves.
