Paddler of the Week: Mr. Laird


It would be impossible for us to kick off our Paddler of the Week feature and not highlight the imitable
Laird Hamilton. What has this guy not done on a surf or SUP board? The only person who can rightly
answer that question is Laird himself.

Hamilton, who continues to ride the biggest waves in the world, also can’t get enough of SUP, whether
touring with friends or clinic students, or riding the surf breakers on one of his trusty Surftech Pro Elite
Stand Up Paddle Boards. We all know that he feels that SUP’ing is a celebration of the traditional
Hawaiian way of surfing which was founded 300+ years ago by King Kamehameha I.

Aloha Mr. Laird.

Keep up standing up-

Mike &  crew
