Library screens new doc about surf legend Laird Hamilton

Bud Werner Memorial Library presents a free screening of "Take Every Wave: The life of Laird Hamilton," an intimate, uncompromising look at a lifetime devoted to riding giant surf, at 6:30 p.m. Monday, April 2 in Library Hall.

Track the remarkable life and legendary career of the big wave surfer. Much admired by the public, though often disdained or ignored by the surf industry itself, Hamilton is a unique sports icon — an athlete who has refused to compete professionally yet has dominated big wave surfing as no other figure in history has ever done. Hamilton's biographical story is told against the backdrop of a winter surf season on Kauai, where El Niño storm systems threaten to bring the biggest surf in decades.

Mixing never-before-seen archival footage, with contemporary verité scenes shot in Southern California, Bermuda and Kauai, "Take Every Wave" weaves the past and present into an intimate and compelling portrait of a superstar athlete at the top of his game. Threaded throughout is a revealing, deeply personal interview with Hamilton as well conversations with the family members, friends, collaborators and detractors who know him best.
