AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes

AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes
I love a sunburnt country / A land of sweeping plains / Of ragged mountain ranges / Of droughts and flooding rains / I love her far horizons / I love her jewel-sea / Her beauty and her terror / The wide brown land for me / ~ Dorothea Mackellar (1885-1968)

Andy Irons

This Billabong sign on a shop at Sorrento, on the southern end of the peninsula pays tribute to the life of the great surfer Andy Irons (1978-2010).
Out of respect and acknowledgement of Andy’s legacy we will continue to dedicate the Billabong Pipe Masters in his memory. As part of this year’s clothing collection for the 2011 Pipe Masters event, Billabong will be re-releasing the hugely popular Andy Irons model Rising Sun board short. For more details, see the Billabong website HERE!

I hadn't heard about Andy Irons - but then surfing is not a huge event right where I live! We do have Billabong stores that I have heard of though.

I am curious and will visit Mr Google to see who Andy Irons was and what happened to him.
