Laird Hamilton Speaks Out for Ocean Preservation
A world-class surfer widely regarded the best in the world at taking on big waves, Laird Hamilton ventures where few dare to ride: monster waves topping out at more than 35 feet tall. Not only is he a world class board rider, he’s a little bit of a renaissance man with water sports. He works on preservation with the Surfrider Foundation and is also credited with inventing the foilboard, windsurfer, kitesurfer, and stand-up paddlesurfer (an ancient Hawaiian technique). He’s married to retired professional volleyball player Gabrielle Reece and, along with their two daughters, divides time between their homes in Malibu and Kauai.
