Laird Hamilton is a surfing legend and legends never die — even, apparently when they tempt fate on massive waves before a beach full of gobsmacked onlookers. In a recent video posted to YouTube, a man purported to be Hamilton, who news reports confirm has been in the area, caught a huge wave at Surfrider Beach in Malibu before shooting the pier like a true daredevil. “Shooting the pier,” in surfing lingo, means to ride a wave through the gaps in a pier’s support posts.
