An excerpt on Bill Hamilton from the surferpedia :

'In 1976, Hamilton was chosen to do the surfing for Jan-Michael Vincent's character, Matt Johnson, in John Milius' Big Wednesday, as well as the scene in which lifeguards abandon their small boat in the pit of a gigantic oncoming wave. Afterward, Hamilton began shaping under the Bear label depicted in the movie. Business boomed with the late '80s surfwear explosion as Bear expanded its line, replacing fishing as his main source of income. The success was fleeting as Milius sued for patent rights, leaving Hamilton back where he started.

Hamilton remains on Kauai, near Hanalei.'
