We don't usually make comment about the latest hot shot surfers or surfing fads in this blog, however, events this week have had such an impact on the surfing world that we have to give our respects to Andy Irons and Kelly Slater.
Its amazing how a bloke like Andy can ride the most dangerous waves in the world then get killed by a mosquito. Sympathy and best wishes to his family.
Congratulations to Kelly on his 10th world title and for being both the youngest and oldest surfer to win a world title. We bestow honerary oldfartsurfer status on Kelly for doing to stay stoked and for being the greatest athlete the world has ever seen.
