The global surfing world is in shock today after hearing that Andy Irons has passed away at just 32 years old . This is really just gob smacking news for us all and only a surfer could possibly understand the impact this news will have – especially in Hawaii. Let me put it into perspective;
Are you a motor-sport fan ? Imagine Michael Schumacher or Valentino Rossi has passed away.
Tennis ? Roger Federer
Basketball ? Kobe Bryant
Soccer ? David Beckham.
You get the picture.
There is a great tribute to Andy here. He leaves his heavily pregnant wife, Lyndie, behind.
