A Fly In The Champagne

The rappers would call this a "collabo." A sophisticated gentleman would call this a stunning collaboration. Surfers call this the most anticipated surf DVD in a long time.

Kelly Slater and Andy Irons. Two weeks in Indo. Big budgets. Expensive cameras everywhere. Heavenly.

"A Fly In The Champagne," the latest surfing DVD from Irons Brothers Productions, gives us what we want - the best surfers (Kelly Slater and Andy Irons) in the best waves (Kandui Resort in the Mentawai Islands).

Beyond the ripping, the movie also documents the fierce competitive rivalry between Slater and Irons that has brewed for the past decade.

Even the two biggest surf companies (Quiksilver and Billabong) teamed up to help put together this movie.

Wait: that is the Ides of March - what a curious day to release a DVD about a surf emperor and a power-hungry suitor to the surf crown.

Et tu, Andy?
