Food seems pretty important to this surfer according to a piece that Men's Health did on him. It starts by talking about his "Push Start" where he begins his "day at the blender with a smoothie." Some of Laird's focus and advice on food includes eating real foods, eating colorful and interesting foods, eating sustainable, and to love your coffee. The last is particularly important to Laird considering he has his own line of coffee. He describes Blame Laird Italian Espresso as being "snappy yet slightly sweet dark roasted coffee" that's rich and tangy.
