Surf fans lobbied through social media, and the World Surf League (WSL) acquiesced. The former Dream Tour surfer and Pipe Master champion will compete in the event held in Memory of Andy Irons, his late brother.
"I'm so honored to be given the opportunity to compete in the Pipe Masters in memory of my brother. I reached out to Kieren a couple of weeks ago and asked if it would be a possibility and he's been completely open with me through this whole process," revealed Bruce Irons.
