“Surf The Turf” – Laird Hamilton and Golfboard

“I think the GolfBoard definitely creates the opportunity to experience the terrain from a whole new persecutive. I think the GolfBoard allows you to kind of surf the turf as they say or just experience the coarse in a way or the land in a way that you wouldn’t normally I think standing up being on a board being able to stand up to use the tipography and kind of create a rhythm and the flow of movement through a green canvas you know in my case I am always on the blue water canvas and this is just an opportunity to kind of bring that experience of the ocean and that sensation into the earth.” – Laird Hamilton (Big Wave Surfing Legend / Golf Board Design Consultant)
