Today on the show we welcome the infamous big wave surfer, Laird Hamilton. We talk to Laird about his journey to greatness, the struggles along the way and what it’s like to take huge risks, for huge rewards.

Laird Hamilton is best known as an American big-wave surfer and pioneer in the world of action water sports. In addition to his affinity for the water, Laird is labeled as an inventor, author, stuntman, model, producer, TV host, fitness and nutrition expert, husband, father and adrenaline junkie.

Laird is a world-renowned “waterman.” He is known as the guiding genius of crossover board sports and is largely considered the primary influence behind many surfing innovations, including tow-in surfing, stand-up paddle boarding, and hydrofoil boarding. Surfer Magazine has labeled Laird as, “the sport’s most complete surfer, displaying almost unnerving expertise in a multitude of disciplines, and flat out surfing’s biggest, boldest, bravest, and the best big wave surfer in the world today, bar none.”
