Tom Pohaku Stone featured on new BBC series

Whatever your opinions of his policy, it’s pretty cool to have a Hawaiian-raised occasional surfer posting up in the Oval Office as President of the United States, throwing the ever-so-often shaka for good measure. And it’s even cooler when big-time institutions outside of the traditional surf-heavy stretches of the ol’ red, white, and blue recognize surf as not only a sun-tanned sport and vacation activity, but a true subsection of the nation’s cultural totem pole.

   

Surf legend Laird Hamilton Spends a Day with E.T.

  

Love him or hate him (or love to hate him), Laird Hamilton lives an interesting life. “The greatest surfer in the world,” as Entertainment Tonight dubbed him, sat down with the Hollywood tabloid to discuss surfing “80-foot, even 100-foot waves,” why he feels at home in Malibu, and stand-up paddling, which he does “most of the time when not doing something else kind of crazy.” And to top it all off, Laird describes how he’d like to be remembered stating, “I hope my legacy is one that I made people believe that they can do things that they didn’t think they could do.”

Can’t get enough Laird Hamilton? Watch him teach NCIS: Los Angeles star Eric Christian Olsen how to stand-up paddle.
