Remembering Andy

By MidWeek Kaua’i Staff

The words used to describe that Sunday, Nov. 14, at Hanalei Bay just begin to tell the story: Awesome, amazing, emotional, unforgettable, chick-enskin. So too do the handmade signs on the highway, such as the one below. As the surfing world in general, and the island of Kaua’i in particular, looked back at the life of Andy Irons, whose ashes were scattered at Pine Trees, the break where he learned to surf, so too do we at MidWeek. Andy twice appeared onMidWeek‘s cover – Jan. 3, 2003, after winning his first world title, and Nov. 19, 2003, as he and Kelly Slater went into the final events of the year in a battle for the world title.
