Andy Irons RIP

Recently, an extremely talented surfer died suddenly from dengue fever. His name was Andy Irons. He died on Nov. 2nd in a Dallas hotel room. I feel it is necessary to talk about Andy because he was an extremely good surfer, and an extremely nice guy. I feel the more people that know about Andy the better he will be remembered as a great human being. He was due to compete in the 9th event of the World Tour when he started to feel sick and went home to see his family. During the flight home, he died in a hotel room during a layover in Dallas. Andy was an amazing surfer. As other surfers have said about him, he was the only one that was close to having the same potential as Kelly Slater(10x World Tour Champion). Andy had only won 3 World Tours, but he was a fierce competitor with the potential to do way more. Below I’m listing a few sites that have videos of tributes to Andy to show how awesome of a guy he truly was.
