Andy Irons has passed away and a trust fund has been set up to assist his family, which includes widow Lyndie Irons and infant son, Andy Axel Irons, born 8th December.

"We all know how much of a special person Andy Irons was and how he touched our lives. He was a leader in our sport but most of all was a great friend that had a huge heart. Lyndie gave birth to their little boy on 8 December", says Mick Fanning, one of the surfers boosting this new trust fund.

"Lets show our love once again by helping a family member of our surfing community. Your love and support is greatly appreciated", completes the Australian pro surfer. In the next two years, Lyndie will have to take care of our little boy and won't have enough time to pursue a full-time career that would generate income.
