Bruce Irons: back to free surfing mode

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.
