(LOS ANGELES) – November 15, 2016 – Big-wave surf legend Laird Hamilton and members of the exclusive Silicon Beach Surfers club have given the new Land Rover Discovery the surfing seal of approval.
Laird was joined by future surf star, eight-year-old Jett Prefontaine, and surfers from the exclusive Californian surf club at Point Mugu in Malibu, as he reconfigured the premium SUV’s seats from the water(3).
The New Discovery Dynamic Design Pack makes its public U.S. debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show on November 16. It combines unbeatable all-terrain capability with unrivalled versatility and a revolutionary new exterior design.
In an effort to match British adventurer Bear Grylls, who rearranged the New Discovery’s seats in mid-air, Laird used the InControl Remote app to operate Land Rover Intelligent Seat Fold technology from the water(3). He and Jett also carried their boards on the vehicle’s specially-designed Aqua Rack and used the SUV’s Powered Inner Tailgate and Activity Key before hitting the water.
