World renowned “ waterman ” Laird Hamilton 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.” read more

On the morning of Monday, December 3, 2007, Laird Hamilton heard the monsters stomping off the north shore of Maui.
The big waves often kick up during the night, says Hamilton, hunched over an espresso at a café in Paia, near his home, seven weeks later. With his daunting slabs of muscle and blazing green eyes, Hamilton has an overpowering physical presence, yet he emanates an aura of calm. You lie in your bed and try to sleep, but you can feel the waves building. When an 80-footer breaks, the foundation of the house trembles. That s why I live on Maui: The waves come to you. It s my job to be ready for them.
The two men rode out from Baldwin Beach Park on a three-seat watercraft. A little less than a mile offshore, they reached Outer Sprecks. The waves rolled up in immense swells, producing faces ranging in height from 50 to 80 feet, although the mass of water behind the face lent each wave its true, island-shaking power. Imagine a 10-story building hurtling at you at 30 miles an hour, followed, every 30 seconds, by another hurtling 10-story building.
