    Truly awe inspiring! It’s hard to believe we’ll never see a surfer who draws the same beautiful lines on a wave that Andy Irons did. It’s like losing a great musician or artist; he placed his surfboard in situations that make us all wish we surfed like him. A legend amongst the greatest. RIP Andy Irons – Your surfing lives on for all in images like these.

    The ultimate power-style-master. Gone. Mythological. “Those who are dead, are not dead, they’re just living in my head”—Coldplay. That one jokes me up nowadays… Many thanks Travis, Sherm, et al @ SURFING. Flame would be so stoked with this tribute.
