Last week the surfing community suffered an amazingly heartfelt loss of pivotal member Andy Irons. Whenever a close knit  community looses a friend we are all reminded of those who have left our living world. Typically not a day goes by that friends no longer with us don’t pass through my mind at least once. As a skier I believe that the memory or soul of the dead are represented by ravens. This past Sunday a friend snapped this great photo:

Truthfully, that bird probably isn’t a raven but the image is still powerful.


“This week will forever be remembered in the history of surfing for two vastly different reasons—Andy’s untimely passing, and Kelly’s record achievements. But together, the two most influential surfers of our time made us all aware of how fragile life can be and how important it is to celebrate every moment of joy we experience in our days.” –Shea Lopez

"To live in hearts we leave behind is not to die."
