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.

Watch the tribute video made by our friends at Track Magazine.

Andy Irons is resting in peace with all of us in his heart. There's a tribute photo gallery dedicated to Andy Irons.
