In memoriam

A memorial of surf board was erected on the North Shore to Andy Irons, a Hawaii born professional surfer who died Nov. 2, 2010, of a reported viral disease. Irons, over the course of his professional career, won three world titles (2002, 2003, 2004), three Quiksilver Pro France titles (2003, 2004, 2005), two Rip Curl Pro Search titles (2006 and 2007) and 20 elite tour victories, including the Vans Triple Crown of Surfing four times from 2002-2006. The Governor of Hawaii declared February 13 forever "Andy Irons Day." (U.S. Air Force photo/Staff Sgt. Mike Meares)
