Video: Laird Hamilton Shoots The Malibu Pier Twice

Versions of this video have been going viral over the past couple of days, and while I don’t cover surfing all that often, I thought it was worth sharing. The short one-minute clip features surfing legend Laird Hamilton as he uses a SUP board, and paddle, to catch some big waves, generated by the arrival of Hurricane Marrie. The amazing part is how he deftly navigates his board under the Malibu Pier, not once, but twice. Don’t try this at home kids, as you’ll probably end up wiping out badly. But for Hamilton, it’s just another day on the water.
