Carlsbad, CA – February 18, 2009 – Surf champions Andy and Bruce Irons will hold their 8th annual Irons Brothers Pine Tree Classic on Saturday, February 28th at Hanalei’s Pine Trees Beach. The Classic, which continues to grow in attendance each year, is a surf contest for young up and coming kids on the island and includes food, games and prizes from event sponsors. The one day event was created as a way to give back to the community where the Irons brothers grew up.  It starts at 8 a.m. and is free for all kids who enter the contest.

Surfers will be eligible to compete in the following categories: menehunes 6-8, boys and girls 9-10, and boys and girls 11-12. Kids in attendance will receive tons of free stuff through the brother’s sponsors including Billabong, Red Bull, Nixon, Volcom, Oakley, DC Shoes, Von Zipper, Dakine, Tamba and JS Surfboards.

“Bruce and I look forward to doing this contest every year for the kids, and it has been amazing to see how it’s grown over the years. We might have had half of the islands population on the beach last year with kids running around everywhere in full mayhem mode. More than anything it’s a surf contest that’s meant to bring everyone from Kauai together for the day and the kids all leave winners thanks to our sponsors,” Andy said regarding the event.

Andy Irons would like to thank the following sponsors: Billabong, Billabong Surfboards, Von Zipper, Dakine and Nixon Watches.

Bruce Irons would like to thank the following sponsors: Volcom, Oakley Eyewear, Dakine, JS Surfboards, Red Bull Energy Drink, DC Shoes and Nixon Watches.
