Andy Irons was remembered today in a memorial ceremony on his home island of Kauai. On the road into Hanalei Bay, decorations were visible everywhere. Many signs read things like, "Andy, we love you" and "1978 – Forever". On the walk down to the crowded beach, the letters 'A.I.' stood 25 feet tall, made of leaves and bamboo, erected by Robert Pa. Marquees lined the beach, with Andy memorabilia and t-shirts printed with 'AI', above a love heart and the letter 'U'. One huge wall was decorated with Irons family photos, including pictures of a handsome young Andy, many of which were with brother Bruce.
"I've had my fair shares of hills and valleys, but my life's been radical and exciting. Stuff that kings would die to do. Straight up, fucken A. The lifestyle we've got and the life I've led since I was 17, I can't even tell my friends. I try and tell stories and they think I'm making it up or saw in in a fucking movie. Straight up. It's the life I wanted since I caught my first wave." Andy Irons, October 12, 2010.
