Andy Irons (1978-2010)

Yesterday, the surfing world lost one of it’s best ambassadors, Andy Irons, to Dengue Fever.  As a college kid who loved to surf (albeit poorly), Andy Irons and Taj Burrow were the two posters that hung in my room.

I wasn’t alone.

I’ve spent the past hour and a half trying to write a blog that would pay proper respect to Andy without coming across as trying to make his death seem more personal to myself than any of the other thousands of people that had his poster on their wall, but alas that sort of writing appears to be beyond me.  After god knows how many stop/starts, I have decided some videos of him surfing would be a better memorial.

After all, that’s how most of us knew him anyways…

rest in peace…
