For Keahi, kitesurfing has become an extension of surfing and a way to spend as much time in the ocean as possible.

It’s a tool that turns windy sessions into a whole new world of fun. It’s an obsessive addiction that has led him to drop everything when a forecasted big swell appears on the horizon and scramble into planning to make it there. 2019 marked the beginning of a journey to go in search of some of the best waves on the planet.

“Tunnel Vision is an action-heavy film that highlights my love for barrels and shows the similarities between sports that I have grown to love”
