Eddie Vedder & surfer Laird Hamilton on Iconoclasts this week

As previously mentioned here, this is the week that Ed Vedder will be featured in the Sundance Channel's show Iconoclasts, which pairs him with another "leading innovator in their field," surfer Laird Hamilton. The two will discuss their passions and share some waves.

PREVIEW (8 minutes) - nice placement of "Given To Fly" which just feels like a surfing song and a couple of songs from the new album, as well as Ed on uke:



I am still too cheap to have the Sundance Channel, but I have another surfing movie I can watch instead, thanks to Netflix.

I watched this whole episode over the weekend. Ed is so laid back and cool and Laird is total Type A. I like Ed better.

We watched about 20 mins. or so. To be honest, it all seemed a little self-important and awkward to me. I'd rather see Eddie Vedder in an interview in his own element. Seemed kinda forced.

I watched it, I've seen Laird in other interviews, I thought this one would be a little more laid back, relaxed, sort of just like two guys talking..it was a little awkward.

I had a really hard time finding Shelter, and then I walked into a surf shop back home (orig. home) in Hermosa Beach, and noticed that they had some surf movies fo sale. When I mentioned the film, all of the clerks gathered and told me it was a store favorite, and they produced it from behind the counter like it was contraband.

Great story, Eliza. It's got a great soundtrack, which I am currently trying to rip....

Yeah, I caught this last night on Sky Arts 1 in the UK. Enjoyed it loads! Pardon my ignorance but I had no idea who Laird Hamilton was!
