Great Inspiration from Laird Hamilton

Laird Hamilton Surfing Teahupo'o

This is a follow-up to my previous post, which was a quick review of Laird Hamilton's book, Force of Nature:  Mind, Body, Soul (And, of Course, Surfing).  I usually take some notes when I read a book, especially one as informative and chock full of tips as this one.  So here are my notes, most […]

How to be a Force of Nature: A Review of Laird Hamilton's Book


I recently finished reading Laird Hamilton’s book, Force of Nature:  Mind, Body, Soul (And, of Course, Surfing) and I must say I really recommend it.  Despite the somewhat cheesy title, the book delivers on offering a basic buffet of knowledge about healthy and dynamic living.
