Andy Irons: a master of surfing quotes

Andy Irons was one of the most talented surfers in the history of the sport. The waves he rode are also a parallel of the words he spoke.

The surfer from Oahu will always be remembered for his commitment, creativity, and wave knowledge. He inspired young and old generations, and he rarely left words unsaid.

Andy Irons left us with good memories, pictures, video clips and movies. But Andy's quotes speak for themselves. The wild Hawaiian could be corrosive, tender, surprising and controversial.

The Box delivered flawless barrels, as the 2014 Drug Aware Margaret River Pro decides the quarterfinalists at the iconic Western Australian slab.

Jordy Smith and Miguel Pupo became the first ever surfers to compete at The Box, with both taking heavy wipeouts while battling for a slot in the Quarterfinals.

Smith logged the first score of significance, posting a 6.33 for a solid forehand tube. The South African followed up with a mid-range score shortly after and placed the heat out of reach for the Brazilian goofy-footer.
