1. Andy Irons Passes Away At Age 32
The surf world was shocked and saddened by the loss of one of its favorite sons when Andy Irons passed away on November 2nd in a hotel room at the Dallas airport. Memorial paddle-outs in honor of AI were held worldwide as well as in Puerto Rico where the World Tour was gathered for the Rip Curl Search Puerto Rico.
Andy’s wife, Lyndie, recently gave birth to their son, Andy Axel Irons so in a sense, his name will live on through his child. If anything, Andy’s death reminded the surf world that we are all connected by the ocean and must look after one another in times of need. We’d like to once again extend our most sincere and heartfelt condolences to the Irons family.
Andy Irons is gone but not forgotten.
