Best known for riding the world’s biggest waves, in his first-ever cookbook surf icon Laird Hamilton opens his kitchen to share his healthy and exotic recipes garnered from a lifetime of far-out travels. Tenacious, innovative and daring describe Laird’s approach to big wave surfing, and now also his culinary creations. Each of the over fifty recipes conform to Hamilton’s venerated way of eating, balancing the right carbohydrates with protein power, all while using fresh and local ingredients rich in nutrients and flavor. Much more than just a simple act of “fueling up,” Laird cherishes meals as a way to coexist harmoniously with friends, family, and his environment; treating the repast not only as a nurturing gesture, but as one of the most fundamental exchanges we use to show our humanity.

Fuel Up navigates some of these far-off destinations and the waves that live at their heart. Join Laird as he prepares for a day of big-wave surfing—powering up with morning smoothies in the Maldives, or breakfast burritos in Oaxaca, Mexico. After catching the morning session, buckle down for a big lunch, Laird style, with butterflied lobsters in Tahiti or turmeric-marinated snapper in Bali. Wind down the day with a Peruvian stir-fry from the infamous town of Chicama—home to the world’s longest wave—or a cassoulet from La Chappelle, a rocky reef break that comes alive in the foggy depths of winter. From the Wild Coast of South Africa to the Gold Coast of Australia, Laird’s novel take on food and life is synthesized in a cookbook unlike any other that invites readers to master themselves and the world through the art of fueling up!

Many of today’s top professional athletes and celebrities look to Laird for training guidance, including instruction in his unique underwater resistance workouts. Laird has a passion for helping others live happy, healthy lives, as exhibited through his work with charities such as the Surfrider Foundation, Race Across America, Pipeline for a Cure for Cystic Fibrosis, and many others. Laird lives with wife Gabrielle Reece and their daughters on the Hawaiian island of Kauai six months out of the year during surfs’ swell season and during the off season, in Malibu, California.
