So you know the broad strokes of Laird Hamilton’s life: Tow-in surfing pioneer, standup paddling pioneer, married to volleyball bombshell Gabby Reece, hydrofoil surfing, muscles that have muscles…

But how much do you really know about The Laird?

Moxie Firecracker Films (Oscar-nominated What Happened, Miss Simone?) and Director Rory Kennedy show us the man behind the legend in a new film, Take Every Wave: The Life of Laird Hamilton. From his wild young days in Hawaii to his humble role of surf, ocean, and fitness ambassador, the film celebrates Hamilton’s lifelong desire to charge new frontiers and his intense commitment to conquering the next wave at all costs.

EDGEtv was stoked to provide Moxie Firecracker Films with archival footage of Laird and Gabby from The Extremists and The Extremists – Waves of Innovation.

Take Every Wave premieres at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival January 19-29. Check it out!
