Kai Lenny, 7X world SUP champion, and the Coast Guard promote water safety

Always use precaution when paddling or doing any water sports. Kai Lenny repeats the importance of water safety with help from the US Coast Guard as well as some ocean sports enthusiasts. 


Kai: I'm Kai Lenny, and the ocean is my playground. But even when I'm playing, safety is one of my top priorities. In an emergency situation, having a life jacket and personal locator beacon will drastically increase your chances of survival, whether you're a professional waterman [SP].

Jacob: Or professional mariner. 

Kevin: Or an ocean sports enthusiast. 

Tara: There's a life jacket for everyone.
