Official Statement: HONOLULU - (November 2, 2010) -- The world of surfing mourns an incredibly sad loss today with the news that Hawaii's Andy Irons has died. Andy was a beloved husband, and a true champion. Irons, 32,withdrew from a professional surfing event in Puerto Rico last weekend due to illness and passed away during a layover en-route to his home in Kauai, Hawaii. He had reportedly been battling with dengue fever, a viral disease. At this time the family thanks his friends and fans for their support,and asks that the community respect its privacy. The family also asks to not be contacted so their focus can remain on one another during this time of profound loss.
It is with deep sadness that Billabong has learned of the news of Andy Irons’ passing. Andy was one of the greatest surfers of our time. More than that, he was a much loved son, a devoted husband and a soon-to-be father. The thoughts of all Billabong employees worldwide are with wife Lyndie and Andy’s family at this most devastating time.

I got a new Malibu 23LSV last month and the boat has been amazing. I hurt my shoulder a couple weeks ago on that quarter pipe hit so we have been wake surfing a bunch over the last week or so. The surf wake is insane.

Some of my boys and I are planning a trip to Georgia. We are looking for spillways, dams, step ups and downs but don't know the area very good. I have found a few but if you have any suggestions I would love to hear or see. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Hopefully we can come shred at a spot near you.

I was cleaning up my hard drive today and found a bunch of clips from a couple weeks ago. some of the lighting is bad, I was learning how to use a new camera. I think I got it dialed now. There are a few good shots in there. The crew I ride with makes it easy to do these videos so often.

The weather was good a couple days ago so I went out to Rusty's for a ride and to shoot with Bill Doster. Fun day, Rattray was going to ride with us but he had to go get a bunch of stitches because a small home improvement accident, but he is coming over today to ride. The weather has turned cold and windy again but we got a ok line on the other side of the lake. I have never used my wetsuit so much in one Orlando winter before.

So awhile back I talked about the importance of a life jacket and told you about a hard crash on a BS 5. I was out riding with Watson last night and managed to take pretty close to the same crash but got it on video, this time with a vest. The numbness only lasted for a couple seconds this time and the vest had me on top of the water in no time.

Hey I got some fun stuff from Ronix to give away. The first 10 people who can show me they ride Ronix get something cool sent out to them. Send me a email at firstname.lastname@example.org . You can show me by a picture of you with your setup.
On a side note we Watson and myself shot today on our new rail setup and again tomorrow so we I will have some new clips up soon. This cold weather has been a drag but its looking up. It was fairly warm today and looks good tomorrow. The cold snap really cooled the water down. The falls smack just a little worse.
