Laird Hamilton is basically a cartoon at this point. If it’s heavy, he lifts it. If it can kill him, he conquers it. He is surfing’s Chuck Norris. Laird doesn’t sleep… he waits. Laird Hamilton does not wear a condom, because there is no such thing as protection from Laird Hamilton. The quickest way to a man’s heart is with Laird Hamilton’s fist, and Laird Hamilton can win a game of Connect Four in three moves. So it should come as no surprise to anyone that, when Kauai was slammed by a violent deluge and heavy flooding, Laird Hamilton stepped it up and came to the rescue. Leila Hurst was one of them, and she captured his heroics on Instagram.

“This might be the best picture ever,” she wrote. No, we did not have a fun day on the boat. This is us getting RESCUED! đŸ˜‚ Hanalei flooded today on the last day of my girls sleepover camp. We had to get evacuated out! What’s a girls party without a little dramaaaaaa right?!! We are home and safe and dry! Thank you to the man @lairdhamiltonsurf you absolute animal!
