Laird Hamilton: Pioneer, Maverick, Outsider

Global Partner

Waterman. Icon. Legend. These are some of the words that have been used to decribe Laird Hamilton. A man who pioneered the sport of big wave riding, invented the foil board and continues to push the outer limits of fitness even as he is ‘preparing for the ground’, as he says.  Laird Hamilton is, and will always be, great.

Here is a quick peek at Laird’s upcoming film, “Take Every Wave:  The Life of Laird Hamilton”, directed and produced by Academy Award nominated Director Rory Kennedy and Moxie Firecracker Films.  Enjoy the trailer!

Take Every Wave:  The Life of Laird Hamilton

“As far back as I can remember, the ocean is where I could hide.  I could get away from the land.  THAT was where all the trouble was.” – Laird Hamilton

In Theaters:  September 29th!  Stay tuned.
