Professional Surfer, Husband, and Father- Andy Irons would have been 37 years young this week. His death was a tragic loss to his family, the surfing community at large, and the people of Hawaii, who loved him dearly. Nearly five years ago, as his wife Lyndie Irons was pregnant with their unborn son Axel, Andy was sadly taken from this earth. Lyndie, serendipitously gave birth to a healthy baby boy December 8, 2010 on the opening day of the Pipeline Masters just weeks after Andy's sorrowful passing.
Lyndie & Axel (2015) She and Axel still live on Kauai where Lyndie and Andy first met, and fell in love over 12 years ago. Lyndie is co-owner of "ACACIA Swimwear," one of the most popular bikini brands in the world, featured on the Cover of Top Magazines, worn by celebrities like Beyonce and Rihanna, and local favorite amongst the surfing elite.
Andy Iron's legendary status as one of the most significant surfers of our generation will continue to live on, and Andy will always be loved and sincerely missed. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Irons Family... AI Forever!
