Farewell Andy

November 14, 2010

I was participating in the Andy Irons paddle-out at Huntington Beach so it was kind of hard to take pictures. I have to say it was one of the coolest things I’ve ever done, and it was my 1st paddle-out.  I’ll always remember Andy for many reasons. First and foremost because he was the 1st pro surfer I’ve ever met and was certainly one of the nicest. He’s also my favorite. I just loved watching him surf.

The day was just beautiful for Andy. As we paddled pass the pier and try to get into position to hold hands, the view I had of the beach, the people on the pier and all of us in the water really struck me. I couldn’t believe how many people showed up. It’s amazing how one life can touch so many people.
