You probably know who he is. He is definitely in the limelight and that is Laird Hamilton.
He’s best known as the American big wave surfer and a pioneer in the world of action water sports. In addition to his affinity for the water, Laird is labeled as an inventor, an author, a stuntman, a model, a producer, TV, host, fitness and nutrition, expert husband, father, and adrenaline junkie. Most important though, for you guys listening to this show, he is not only all of those things, but for those of you who are dads with daughters, this podcast is definitely for you.
He is married to the ridiculously successful and beautiful Gabrielle Reese. They also have three daughters. They split their time in several different, beautiful places like Hawaii and Malibu. And as you guys know, you can find Laird, obviously chasing the big tides out in the ocean, because that is what he is known for.
I have to tell you, I really didn’t know what to expect out of today’s show. I’ve followed Laird for a long time. I gotta tell you, I really enjoy talking to him. He really goes into detail about how he goes about marriage with Gabrielle and also how he goes about raising strong, young, confident women in his life.
