I'm still shocked tonight hours after learning of the death of three-time world champion surfer Andy Irons. I have several vids of Andy that I've watched for inspiration over and over this past year of knee rides and black eyes and wipe outs.

Andy's style is fast and smooth. He leaves a wife who is 7-months pregnant with their first child, a son. Really sad.

Billabong has a beautiful tribute to him here.


  1. I saw your tweet and wondered who he was. I'm sorry to hear he has passed. There are not enough heroes in the world. My heart goes out to his wife and unborn son.

  2. Based on those I have met in the surfing community, his wife and son will have a great deal of support. I would not be surprised if his son is a top surfer a few decades from now.
