OXBOW STUNT MAN IN BOND FILM
The name's Hamilton... Laird Hamilton...
One of the luxuries of having already made 19 Bond films is that when the producers
pick up the phone to get the best person for the job, they can usually assume
that the person will be interested in taking it on. So when the script called
for a spectacular surf scene, the producers called for Oxbow team rider and
world renowned big wave surfer Laird Hamilton.
In one of the scenes 007 is being chased on one of the world's biggest waves:
Jaws. Laird Hamilton was given the mission to stand in for 007......."We
went for a huge wave on Maui called Jaws. It's a hungry wave that wants to eat
you, that's why they call it Jaws" (Laird Hamilton)
Spring/Summer 2003 will see the launch of Oxbows new Laird Hamilton line. The
Laird Hamilton by Oxbow line combines a high level of performance, user-friendliness
and quality in its design and fabrics. More information can be found on our
website and a brochure previewing the range can be sent on request.
