He's weird but I kinda respect him.

what a douche! Did you hear this guy talk about what he thinks "the ultimate waterman" is... haha.
His first description is "humble"... then he jumps right into talking about himself in the 3rd person " one of the best athletes in the world"
The focked up part.... is that the general public gets their mental image of surfers from this guy.
the weird planing board thing is cool though.

Some engineer designed the "T" shape blade that harnesses the wave energy below the surface. The original board design had a chair which was really weird; then Laird fasten ski boots to the deck like straps on his tow boards. Laird with a few other big wave riders designed a chest & back vest similar to models fisherman wear that operates on CO2 cylinders that inflates automatically that pops them up for tow ski rescue.
