This CA native never once hunted but climbs....

He climbs and descends fluid Monsters that only he and no one else will ever attempt. A true man of courage and personal commitment.

Laird Hamilton has been a true inspiration to me for over two decades now.

Not because of what he does and his accomplishments. No.


But because of why and how he does it.

Thanks for sharing, Chief. Laird is also one of my heroes and the movie that the clip comes from (Riding Giants) is one of my favorite documentary films: from the rare footage to the incredible editing to the commentary to the music, it is a film masterpiece, and while Laird's ride is on the ultimate wave, there are many rides in that movie that are just awe-inspiring...thanks again for sharing!!!

He's a great surfer, Chief, but, he's not the only one riding those giants; there are a few.

It's time to move on when folks start putting links to Oprah in the mountaineering forums.
