Following the sad news that shocked the surfing world yesterday, a lay day was called today out of respect for three time ASP World Champion Andy Irons. There was a paddle out at the contest site Middles at 11am where tour friends came to pay respects. Mick, Roy Powers, Davo and Mark Cunningham said poignant words.

Wherever you are in the world, the next time you paddle out, catch a couple of waves for Andy, his family and loved ones.
