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.”

The Art of Repair

It all started with a pair of socks… White, woollen – my favourite pair. The heels had become thin and threadbare; then a small hole appeared on one of the toes. Too precious to throw away, I decided to mend them. I chose a ball of yarn from my mother’s wool collection and she found me her old darning mushroom, which had once belonged to my granny, and explained the basics. I remember the feeling of it: threading the needle with a strand of contrasting grey wool, while pulling the heel over the domed wooden mushroom; weaving my needle in and out of the surviving strands; making little bridges back and forth like a lawn mower; slowly closing the hole. The process was instinctive. I can still recall the feeling of pride and achievement when I had finally finished. Sure my darn looked a little rustic, but I had given my socks
a new lease of life, a second chance.
