Paddling out in Puerto Rico: see you in heaven, Andy

Emotions, tears and memories flowed throughout the surfing world as Andy Irons passed away at 32.

In Puerto Rico, where the pros gather for the Dream Tour competition, surfers paddled out and raised their arms in honor of the late Hawaiian legend.

The memorial service was held at Middles Beach, in Porta Del Sol, today. Roy Powers (HAW), Dusty Payne (HAW) and other friends carried bouquets of flowers and laid them on the ocean.
