RIP Andy Irons


Recommended Posts

Died 2 days ago from apparent Dengue fever he caught during his travels. What was suppose to be a celebration of Kelly Slater's 10th world championship in Puerto Rico, has turning into mourning of one of the greatest surfers to ever grace a wave. Taken from this earth far to early. He left behind a wife and unborn son. RIP AI

Terrible. His impact on the surfing community will be remember forever.

He challenged the greatest ever and probably kept Slater from winning 13 World Titles. It was really unthinkable, Slater was at his peak and AI came in and took the tour by storm.

Top 10 barrel riders of all time. Met him a couple of times at some surf expo's. Classy dude.
