Information Roundup – 15 November 2010

Here are some links you may find interesting:

Three time world surfing champion Andy Irons passed away on November 2nd on the way home to Hawaii from Puerto Rico. Reports say he died as a result of dengue fever, but there’s also been reports linking the death to a rumored drug addiction. I hope the surf media gets to the bottom of the story, but am skeptical that it will not be inclined to probe. Regardless of the cause of death, it’s very sad. “AI” was a brilliant surfer and colorful personality. For me, Andy Irons was easy to like because he was always very genuine in the way he presented himself to the public. Here’s a touching tribute from photographer Brian Bielmann, with music by the late “IZ” Kamakawiwoʻole.
