While the comp in Tahiti is taking another layday it’s only fitting I repost an oldie but definilty a goodie of Andy Irons. This image was shot in the 90’s and ran in @surfer_magazine and has been used around the world in various mags and websites. This is a Repost from @markrichardssurfboards and his caption says it all.
“Photo Peter ‘Joli’ Wilson. Re post from Lindie Irons & Matt Hoy. Andy Irons sitting above a beast of a wave at Teahupoo. When it came to surfing “waves of consequence” Andy treated them like they were 2-3’ beach breaks. No one came close to his fearlesness when it was big & breaking on dangerous shallow reefs !!! I’m positive he didn’t go for this wave in the photo because he was waiting to catch the one behind because it was even bigger & more radical then this one. @joliphotos @lindieirons @hoy666”
