Rest in Peace Andy Irons

Not SUP related, but I’m sure most of you will be familiar with Andy Irons, one of the most popular surfers on the ASP curcuit.

On layover in Dallas Texas, Andy was found dead in an airport hotel room this morning by hotel staff.

Details are vague at this point, but he was apparently suffering from Dengue Fever in Puerto Rico, and was en route back to Hawaii to see his personal doctor back home in Hawaii.

I’ve been meaning to find a reason to post this “I surf because” video for a couple months now, and unfortunately this is entirely suitable…

In particular, check out the ride from the 2:00 minute onwards… Amazing surfing on an incredible wave…

Rest in Peace Andy.
