Join hostess Gabrielle Reece as she learns how to surf on the Northern shore of Maui with Laird Hamilton, one of the innovative surfers who brought the world strapped surfing. Strapped surfing gives enthusiasts the chance to maneuver through sharp tricks even if they’re not one of the top surfers in the world and gives surfers speed far beyond those normally found in surfing.
