Laird Hamilton: shooting the Malibu Pier in overhead surf

Blame Laird. The big wave surfer from Kauai decided to shoot the Malibu Pier, at Surfrider Beach, California.

You've got to time it well. Shooting the pier may seem easy, but when the wave travels at full speed you've got to make confident and quick decisions.

Unfortunately, a few lives have been lost while shooting famous surfing piers. This time, Laird Hamilton calculated it well. The ride is quite impressive. Wait, he scored it twice.

After setting an optimal surf line for nearly 30 seconds, Hamilton got his standup paddleboard through the Malibu Pier, while an ecstatic crowd roared from the beach.

The Malibu Lagoon State Beach, also known as Surfrider Beach, is the first World Surfing Reserve. Its iconic right-hander offered Laird Hamilton a 400 yard ride in double overhead surf.
