Five products that Laird Hamilton should really get behind

Laird Hamilton recently popped up in an advertisement for Land Rover, where he did some mild off-roading, adjusted the seats from the lineup using his phone, and stood triumphant as a Greek god upon his SUP, of course.

Let’s Be Frank

A look at Peter Hamblin’s unorthodox profile of Frank Solomon

I’ll be frank—the new movie starring big-wave surfer Frank Solomon is not actually a surf film. Well, not in the traditional sense anyway. Is there surfing? Oh yeah.

Sons Of Steamer Lane

Santa Cruz has long been synonymous with brash locals, big airs, and bigger flameouts. But can the next generation of local surfers flip the script?
