Hamilton has his own line of paddle boards which is one of the leading brands in the industry. In a nutshell, this guy is a legend.

This week it was announced that Laird had made an appearance in the highly anticipated annual issue of ESPN's Body Issue where athletes are selected and pose nude to showcase their athletic form in a tasteful and artistic way. Laird appears with his wife who is also a former professional volleyball player, Gabrielle Reece. When talking about Stand up paddling for the issue Laird mentioned, "I'm also constantly doing something new. I've moved on to another aspect of the sport [stand-up paddleboarding]. It's more like an artist; I was an impressionist at one point, and now I'm doing sculptures."
