After getting out of the water yesterday from an epic surf, I got word that former World Champion surfer Andy Irons had passed away. While I had never met him I have surely done a few grab-rail cutbacks that were inspired by him. As did many throughout the surfing community, I felt a need to pay tribute and give thanks. Last night I posted up on the beach for a few hours and watched as the tide and the swell chiseled away at the shoreline. Here is an image that reflects on that passing of time.
