Andy Irons: a trust fund has been set up to assist his family

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 on December 8.

"We all know how much of a special person Andy Irons was and how he touched our lives," says Mick Fanning, one of the surfers boosting this new trust fund.

"He was a leader in our sport, but most of all, he was a great friend who had a huge heart. Lyndie gave birth to their little boy on 8th December."

"Let's 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.
