Wiki

Andy Irons (July 24,1978 – November 2, 2010) was a professional surfer. Irons learned to surf on the North Shore in Kauai, Hawaii, and won three straight world titles (2002, 2003, 2004), and was the only surfer to win at every spot on the elite tour; three Quiksilver Pro France titles (2003, 2004, 2005), two Rip Curl Pro Search titles (2006 and 2007) and 19 elite tour victories. On September 3, 2010 he won the Billabong Pro in Tahiti.  

He died in Dallas, TX on November 2, 2010 of complications from dengue fever.

February 13 was declared 'Andy Irons Day' by the governor of Hawaii.

His younger brother, Bruce Irons, is a former competitor on the World Championship Tour of Surfing (WCT). During his childhood Andy regularly lost to Bruce in contests, but that changed once he entered the World Championship Tour.

Andy married Lyndie Dupuis on November 25, 2007 in Princeville, Kauai. She was seven months pregnant with their first child at the time of his death.

He was inducted into the Surfing Walk of Fame in Huntington Beach, California in 2008.

In 2009 Andy withdrew from doing the full ASP World Tour season for personal reasons, though he did participate in a few events. He requested a wildcard entry for the 2010 ASP World Tour season and was granted this by ASP President Wayne Bartholomew so Andy did not have to re-qualify in 2010 via the World Qualifying Series (WQS). Andy won the Billabong Pro Tahiti
