Surfing has become a contest between snarling hydrological monsters and the legendary men who tame them with style and grace.
Many consider Kelly Slater to be the greatest surfer who has ever lived and it would be hard to argue since Kelly has been crowned the Association of Surfing Professionals World Champion 10 times and has a history of tournament wins that is mind boggling. Kelly has a natural style that makes even the impossible look easy.
Although Laird had always shunned competitive surfing his name stands out like a beacon on the sea as the very best big wave surfer on the planet. Laird once had a career as a male model, he was the innovator of tow-in surfing and has rode the heaviest wave ever ridden on the reef break at Teahupo, Tahiti.
