Los Angeles 2016: All-new Land Rover Discovery goes surfing (video)

Approved by surf pro Laird Hamilton By ,

The All-new Land Rover Discovery, currently on display at the 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show to demonstrate its Dynamic Design Pack, received a seal of approval from legendary surfer Laird Hamilton and 8-year old surfing prodigy Jett Prefontaine during a recent adventure in Malibu.

While famous survivalist Bear Grylls rearranged the new Discovery’s seats in mid-air during the spectacular world premiere a few weeks ago, Laird used the InControl Remote app to operate Land Rover’s Intelligent Seat Fold technology from the water. 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 wristband before hitting the water.
