Laird Hamilton Movie Take Every Wave

Posted by

Well it was better than I thought it would be. Most of the surf footage you've probably seen. Half the movie was super grainy out of focus old surf footage from back in the day of surf videos. One cool thing was a short clip of Greg Noll walking up the beach after swimming in. Always cool to see Noll when he surfed. The Take Every Wave story was good, if you don't already know more than you want to about Laird. There was some info about him and his family I didn't know.  It was great to see big waves on the big screen, the waves that were in focus anyway. It seemed like they ran a lot of the old surf footage over and over of Hamilton surfing the same wave. One thing for sure Laird is committed to what he does. We all got to step our fitness game, the dude is way fit for an old guy.  That hydro board thing he rides looks so boring.  I think I'd rather listen to him talk (lol)  than watch him ride that thing. All in all I'd say go see it. Especially if you can get your girlfriend or wife to pay for it. Otherwise save your money for some after surf session munchies. 

On the WSL scene. The women's title race is super super tight with one surf event to go. Sally Fitzgibbons has 1700 point lead over Tyler Wright. With Courtney Conlogue and Carrisa Moore right behind too close for comfort.
And on the men's side John John Florence took the lead over Jordy Smith heading into Rip Curl Pro Portugal.
If you're not watching, you're  Missing some good surfing action.

Go Dodgers with a nice bottom of 9th inning home run by Justin Turner to win a tied 1-1 game and  go up 2 to 0 in the series.

Sally Fitzgibbons Roxy Pro France

Is this Sally Fitzgibons  championship year ? Fitzgibbons is ranked number 1 with an uncomfortable small lead over Courtney Conlogue and Tyler Wright. Fitzgibbons has come up just short too many times. We're rooting for Sally just because she's been so so close, but that being said, Courtney Conlogue was born in Santa Ana, Southern [...]
