Official news that Kauai’s Bruce Irons has parted ways with long time sponsor Volcom and signed a long term deal with Fox Clothing confirms rumours that have been floating about for a couple weeks now. He’ll join other International team Fox heads Bede Durbidge, Damo Hobgood and Ian Walsh. Having kept a pretty low profile the last couple years, hopefully this just means that everyone will get to see a lot more of Bruce back in the water going forward. Here follows their official press release.
