A steamy two-part rendezvous!
A holiday to Malibu, California, wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the compound of Laird Hamilton, a well-proportioned fifty-eight-year-old Hawaiian-born man, a superhuman some might say, who deals in the wellness game.
In the case of Paddy Pimblett, the latest UFC sensation, three fights, all wins, able to fight at 155 and walk around a week later at 200, nostrils that flare with the scent of blood, eyes that dilate like targets on a rifle range, it’s a two-part rendezvous.
In part one, Paddy, closer to 200 than 155, lifts dumbbells in the water and runs around the bottom of the swimming pool, weighted, does breathing exercises, plunges into an ice bath and behaves as if ice picks have been driven into his eye sockets and enjoys a sauna.
Part two is an hour-long interview where Laird roams across a variety of topics including an explanation of the difference between fighting and violence, his dive into the superfood biz (“It’s a good product I developed for myself and then I shared it with friends”), inventing paddleboarding, inventing foil-boarding, inventing tow-surfing and so on.
