Fun Facts

  • Hammond commissioned a custom Robert August longboard, shaped by the legendary surfer himself.
  • He cried when the 2004 Boston Red Sox won the World Series.
  • Greg Attonito, lead singer of The Bouncing Souls, once borrowed SWH’s acoustic guitar to use during a concert at Red Rocks Amphitheater.
  • Hammond is an avid overland explorer and adventurer, journeying to some of the most remote locations in the US.

From the Saline Hot Springs to Charlie Manson's hideout (with what looks like some sort of blood dripping ritual), Death Valley is a bizarre place. I did about 450 miles of dirt roads and 4x4 tracks, eventually cutting the trip short because the fuel pump in the Jeep died. It was a true adventure, given I was about 40 miles to pavement and another 75 to cell phone service.
