This week we’re talking with Laird Hamilton and Gabriel Reece, two of the most high functioning, successful and driven people we have ever met, about their lives together and how they work to establish a lifestyle, routine and community centered around happiness and health. They’re professional athletes. Laird is basically the king of surfing and Gabby is a former professional volleyball player, they’re both business owners and between them, they have their own documentaries, podcasts, books and more.

They run and host a fitness, wellness and recovery program called XPT where they travel to different locales and spend three days eating, surfing, meditating and working out with other likeminded folks. We had a chance to attend one of these experiences last summer—it was an absolutely singular inspiring experience that still informs the choices we make every day. In this interview, we talk about XPT, we talk about their super food company, a new documentary about Laird’s life and we talk about the way they eat, work out and their relationship with each other and with other people in their community.
