LIFERIDER explores the inner psyche and guiding philosophies of legendary surfer and international fitness icon Laird Hamilton

In this follow-up to his New York Times bestselling book Force of Nature, surfing legend, fitness icon, and entrepreneur Laird Hamilton condenses his worldview into three simple blocks of thinking, feeling, and doing.  Hamilton reveals the secrets behind his success and breaks down the principles that have motivated his extraordinary life in this prescriptive narrative that condenses his unique worldview into its three distinct elements: heart, body, and soul.

  • “When Laird Hamilton surfs, you must watch. When he speaks, I listen. And when he writes a book I’m damn sure gonna read it. Twice.”

    Eddie Vedder

  • “Laird is a hero, if you want him to be. That’s up to your perception. He challenges himself, and he challenges those around him. I challenge him. He challenges me. We want the colour that life has to offer, and it seems that the deeper you puncture into life, the more vibrant the colours get.”

    Josh Brolin

  • “Laird Hamilton is a true individualist unafraid to carve his own path. These thoughtful mediations offer a unique window – illuminating and inspiring – into one of America’s great innovators.”

I Can’t Believe It’s Baby Food!

My aim is to help parents make both cooking and mealtimes as enjoyable and stress-free as possible. It’s all about sharing food that the whole family will love, with your baby in a highchair pulled up to the table. Apart from the first few weeks of weaning, there really is no need to cook twice. In fact, it’s much better that you don’t! Your baby will benefit both nutritionally and developmentally from eating with you; and, if you are not stuck in the kitchen all day preparing endless different meals, you’ll be happier and less frazzled, too.

Your child’s development depends on three key areas of health that are intertwined and are interdependent – these are the Brain, the Immune system and the Gut (BIG). The first thousand days seems to be the critical window to get this essential BIG nutrition trio functioning well, as that is when your baby’s mind, immune-resilience and intestinal health are being primed for the future.
