Ridge Lenny is a professional ocean athlete and business owner born and raised on the beautiful island of Maui. He spends countless hours in the ocean, training in the gym, and operating two businesses, so we were happy to get him into the Cooking Hawaiian Style kitchen.
Ridge is the younger brother of professional big wave surfer Kai Lenny. Both say their love of the ocean came from their parents who raised them on the beach enjoying all water activities.
These days you can find Ridge surfing massive waves at Peahi on his home island, or cruising atop the ocean, wing fishing.
