Laird Hamilton (@lairdhamiltonsurf), big wave surfer, inventor, and pioneer of tow surfing and foil boards has been using underwater training to prepare himself for the rigors of big wave surfing for decades. His path to learning about underwater training started by combining rock carrying in the ocean which is a custom training in Hawaii where he is from. The methodology advanced and he has created a system in which he can deploy the training to the masses.


Gabby Reece (@gabbyreece) is a lifelong athlete, model, and entrepreneur most commonly known for her multiple gold medals in beach volleyball. Gabby is often the first test dummy for the training formulated in the brain of Laird Hamilton. Her role at XPT has taken shape in the form of coaching expertise, specifically in the underwater training portion of XPT. Her leadership in and out of the pool can be felt with her powerful voice, calming demeanor, and her background in athletics lets you know she means business.
