November 2, 2010

Today the surf community has lost one of its greatest athletes, enthusiast, and waterman.  32-year-old Andy Irons passed away Tuesday November 2, in route back to Hawaii from the Rip Curl Search in Puerto Rico.  Irons missed his Saturday heats in the contest due to illness and was traveling back to home to seek medical attention.  Sources confirm that he had contracted Dengue Fever.  The three-time world champion leaves behind a pregnant wife, family, and a ohana of friends.

Deepest condolences to the family and friends of Andy.
