Andy Irons Memorial Paddle Out
Surfers raise their arms in honour of the late Andy Irons (Haw) during a paddle out memorial service held at Middles Beach in Porta Del Sol, Puerto Rico today.
Irons's friends Roy Powers (HAW) and Dusty Payne (HAW) lead the paddle out followed by fellow ASP World Tour surfers, friends, industry representatives and fans who carried bouquets of flowers which were scattered into the ocean in rememberance of the late Andy Irons (HAW).
Irons won three ASP World Championship title in 2002, 2003, and 2004 and was the only true rival to 9X ASP World Champion Kelly Slater (USA). He is survived by both his parents, his brother Bruce and pregnant wife Lindy.
