Andy Irons - i surf because short film

Andy Irons is one of the world's greatest ever surfers. A 3 times world champion made famous by his epic battles with Kelly Slater. But outside all the victories Andy's life started to take a turn and his fire was starting to go out. He left the sport in search of himself and took it all back to basics.

It's unsettling that a single individual can have so much influence in your life, without saying a word to this gentleman. I understand he went to the best of a different drum, but I think that's what I appreciate most. God bless Andy. Fuck you for making me write something via YouTube, hopefully I'll have the honor of meeting you some day, or having a fraction of your talent. RIP my friend.

Anyone else notice the music they gave him 'A.A. Bondy'...was it changed to this after he died?
'Killed myself when i was young, With my fingers on a poison gun'

Legend, but those eyes are telling a different story to what he speaks, almost as if he's already hit a point of no return, yet, a somewhat excitement when talking about his first memories though, sad. Like he says, chicks, parties, cars...they're just stuff.
Surfing is something real, it changes people...RIP.

+yewboi123 i surf aswell, for now 6 years or more. I can feel that, its the most spiritual sport. It changed my life. Yes it is hard to explain because each one have a different way to see surf for itself. But its not only surf that gives a good feeling, thats my point. My friend surfed but he didnt fell up to it, so he started hiking and he loves it to his life! Its about YOUR inner happiness, thats what makes a sport feels good, doesnt matter the sport.

+Carlos Andres It's his JS signature model. He took over 3 this day and snapped all of them and ended up using one of Parko's and then he snapped that so he went into the beach and swapped his boardshorts for 3 Bintangs and then watched his mates get barrelled for the rest of the afternoon. We were about to leave and could not find him. It was nearly dark and he paddled up to the boat in just his lycra undershorts. So funny! He jumped on the boat and screamed i surf because... of days like this!!

When I was young I surfed: because Kelly Slater did it… because it was hyped… because it got chicks… because it was the party… because it got the cool car… I surf now: because it’s all about the feeling I get from riding that wave… because surfing is the only thing that keeps me going… because I have the will… because I am always a better person when I come in….

Now I am in line, if not better than most my friends, all from practice and inspiration to make me practice. I have never met you , and because of a tragic accident, I never will. If there was any surfer I could of met it would of been you :( Anyway... Thanks, thank you so much for getting me t

Andy's surfing style was hard nose old school mixed with aerial progressive moves. Andy had cool hard style mixed with flair unlike the young surfers of today who are boring, stale, with a whole bunch of boring air reverses. His snaps are tight in the pocket & threw the most vertical spray.

Because he could & there was nothing they could do or say because he was right & just keep doing it all day right in their faces with the sheer audacity of the feelings it gave him on different levels we can only imagine it

I wont go as drastic as to say Andy Irons is the reason I surf, but everything that he says about the reason he is addicted to surfing i absoluely agree with. I am a better person whe im sitting on my Al merrik and thats just the way it is.

Andy Irons was reincarnated to my dog. He died when my dog was born (Nov 2.) and I named him Andy (without even knowing who Andy Irons was or of his existence). Some signs is he absoloutely loves water, is a mini Goldendoodle, so he looks like a bit of a surfer dog. I even like to think he resembles him a little bit. Thumbs up if you believe in life after death.
