Hamilton and wife, Gabrielle Reece (former professional volleyball player, now a fitness guru), had converted the entire first floor into a gym and the 1,674 sq. foot garage housed six vehicles, a flotilla of watercraft, and jet skis used for tow-in surfing.
Hamilton, who said he could “hear Jaws break” from his bedroom, chose the site for its proximity to the surf spot—to fulfill his dream of riding Jaws whenever it broke.
