Kelly and Rico Waikiki are a tandem surf team, which means that they paddle out on the same surf board and then catch waves together. Kelly, the lighter and nimbler of the two, stands in front so that when he’s balanced nicely, Rico can lift her into the air. The couple perform a variety of acrobatics on the board, with Rico providing the strength and Kelly adding to the pose with her sleek, nimble body.
This fun video shows the tandem surfing couple laughing, joking and occasionally slipping off the board in a tangle of limbs. The waters of Hawaii are warm, which means that the surfers don’t need to wear wet suits and can soak up the sun while surfing.
