Sadly we reported earlier that champion surfer Andy Irons has passed away at the young age of 32. It’s a tragedy for such a young and talented man and his family. Here are a few things you might not have known about this Surfing legend.

An accomplished surfer, Andy had three world titles , three Quiksilver Pro France, two Rip Curl Pro Search titles and an impressive 19 elite tour victories. On September 3rd 2010 he won the Billabong Pro in Tahiti.
Andy Irons younger brother, Bruce Irons, is also an accomplished surfer who used to compete on the World Championship Tour of Surfing.

Our condolences go out to his entire family.
