CELEBRATED SURFING ICON Mr. Laird Hamilton signed for me IN PERSON this FULL November 1998 NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC ISSUE that features Mr. Hamilton on the cover. When Mr. Hamilton signed this for me, he said that the National Geographic issue is VERY HARD TO FIND and he did not even have one in his collection! Laird is a big-wave surfer and co-inventor of tow-in surfing. It was Hamilton's death-defying drop into Tahiti's Teahupo'o break (commonly known as, CHOPU) on the morning of August 17, 2000 which has become the measure of his surfing career to date, and firmly established his reputation as the greatest and bravest big wave surfer in the recorded history of surfing. A wipeout at Teahupo'o reef on a 'big day', a particularly hazardous shallow-water reef break in southeast of the Pacific Island of Tahiti, could result in a surfrider's death. Laird Hamilton is considered the "Michael Jordan" of surfing.
