When and how did you start filming?

I was surfing out at Huntington Beach, and I saw a blue and red board and someone doing an air reverse. I thought to myself … "is that Kai Lenny? What the hell is he doing here? I thought he was in Nazare yesterday" Then saw Kai paddle past me and thought "what the hell am I doing out here? I should probably film this!" So caught a wave in and grabbed the drone I had and filmed kai and made an edit of it. Which he later posted. And that got me hooked and the swell chase began. So all thanks to Kai Lenny! Haha
