Laird Hamilton: inspiring the world with quotes and sayings

Laird Hamilton is one of the most famous watermen in the world. He challenged unridden waves; he defied death and opened the way to modern tow-in big wave surfing.

Hamilton was born on the 2nd March, 1964, in San Francisco, California, but he moved to Hawaii when he was still a young boy. At 17, Laird was already a superb wave rider.

As years passed by, the blonde surfer tried new things and risked his life several times. Hamilton left a mark in the history of Teahupoo, and introduced foil boarding in the giant waves.


Surf tattoos: Jesus loved hanging ten

Surfing is driven by emotions. That is why surfers decide to perpetuate their love for the waves in their bodies. But surf tattoos can get really creative, especially when skulls and brands get into play.

Tattoos require time to think about them and, usually, a very good reason. Surf tattoos last forever, just like the surfers' passion for waves, oceans, and beach lifestyle.

Waves and surfboards are very popular, so tattoo artists are quickly getting used to the surfing fever. However, in some cases, clients can be even more creative than the tattooist.
