Laird Hamilton is a key personality in the development of big wave surfing. On August 17, 2000, he rode one of the meanest and thickest waves on the planet. This is the story of the Millennium Wave.
Half Hawaiian, half Californian, Laird Hamilton pioneered the birth of tow-in surfing and participated in some of the most epic XXL sessions in the history of the sport.
Known as a swell hunter, the waterman has never stopped pushing the boundaries of surfing, and specifically of what is considered surfable.
