Laird Hamilton: Pioneer, Maverick, Outsider

Global Partner

Waterman. Icon. Legend. These are some of the words that have been used to decribe Laird Hamilton. A man who pioneered the sport of big wave riding, invented the foil board and continues to push the outer limits of fitness even as he is ‘preparing for the ground’, as he says.  Laird Hamilton is, and will always be, great.

Here is a quick peek at Laird’s upcoming film, “Take Every Wave:  The Life of Laird Hamilton”, directed and produced by Academy Award nominated Director Rory Kennedy and Moxie Firecracker Films.  Enjoy the trailer!

“As far back as I can remember, the ocean is where I could hide.  I could get away from the land.  THAT was where all the trouble was.” – Laird Hamilton

She is a year-round surfer and paddler living on the eastern tip of Long Island in NY who is a certified SUP instructor, seasoned SUP racer and avid longboard surfer. Evelyn was hired as Online Editor to Standup Journal in 2016. Her passion for the project quickly led to her success and eventually taking over the mag herself in Oct. 2018. Today, as editor, publisher and chief bottle washer at Standup Journal, Evelyn keeps her toes wet writing, traveling, paddling, surfing, and learning to foil. You can find her most days paddling out on Gardiner's Bay or surfing Ditch Plains in Montauk, NY.
