TODAY the surfing world mourns the death of Andy Irons. The three time world champion was found dead in his hotel room after succumbing to suspected dengue fever.
Andy was a true champion who had battled through private demons to get back to the top of the world culminating in his recent win in Tahiti.
The elder of the dynamic Irons brothers, Andy was a fearsome competitor, especially so when it got heavy. He inspired a generation with his surfing and our thoughts are with his family at this tragic juncture.
It may be too late for the ASP Big Wave World Tour, but Dungeons lit up.
Conor Maguire harks towards a time when the cold and dark wraps back in and the lows deepen, spinning thick ropes of swell towards Ireland.
Italy has waves and Sardinia has some of the best spots, places you would not believe. Leonardo Fioravanti knows that better than most...
From the Caribbean to Nova Scotia (and maybe even Europe) the forecast is for a medium sized swell to grace your local beach.
Like a lot of the waves in the edit, this one is a grower. Dusty Payne and Yadin Nicol make light work of things you'd sail on by.
Highlight of the day was the 17-year-old brother of local legend Manoa. He blew everyone away.
