Bruce Irons has announced that he will leave the ASP World Championship Tour no matter how he finishes in the 2008 year end ratings.

"I'm going back to being a freesurfer," Bruce says. "It's what I was meant to do."

Although this was a difficult decision, Bruce is confident that his choice to leave competition behind is the right one.

"I prefer to go back to how I started my whole surfing trip, which is to go on surf trips and make videos." Volcom is 100% supportive in Bruce's decision and we're looking forward to the next step in his career.
