Andy Irons Dead at 32

Andy Irons Portrait
Very sad news coming in today that three-time ASP World Champion Andy Irons has passed away. Initial reports are citing dengue fever as the cause of death. Irons had dropped out of the Rip Curl Pro Search Puerto Rico due to illness over the weekend and was traveling back to Hawaii. He was apparently too sick to board his flight in Dallas, TX and had to get a hotel room where he was later discovered dead. Irons tragically leaves behind a pregnant wife. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Irons family.

Drew Innis

A New Englander through and through, Drew grew up in Connecticut / New Hampshire and got over educated in Boston. He also lived on a beach in Southern California for some years. Film, photography, music and literature monopolize his time these days. Drew lives in Brooklyn, NY, eats too many cheeseburgers at the Commodore and hopes to carry on simply one day on a big piece of land by the sea without the computer or YouTube.
