Bummer for the surfing world, 3x ASP world champion surfer Andy Irons tragically died yesterday reportedly from Dengue fever while returning to Hawaii from Puerto Rica. I never knew him personally, but he was much admired and loved by surfing fans world-wide; as a fan I have followed his career since he was 17. Unfortunately he leaves a pregnant wife, father and brother (Bruce Irons another professional surfer) – my regards go out to them. Mahalo Andy, you will be missed!
