Gerry Lopez on Laird Hamilton – the Video

For the Summer 2010 issue of SUP magazine, we were looking for a voice to give us a new perspective on the sport of standup paddling. We found that in the incomparable Gerry Lopez, who guest edited our publication with his own wise touch. As part of his editing duties, Lopez interviewed standup renaissance man Laird Hamilton in early May at a beach house in Malibu, Calif., just south of the legendary Point Dume surf break. With nearly a century of wave riding experience between them, these two iconoclasts examined what makes this growing sport so much fun.
