Remembering Andy Irons: An Icon on Kauai

World Champion surfer Andy Irons touched the lives of many people, but perhaps his biggest impact was felt back on his home island of Kauai. Kauai local Tin Tin Puulei remembers getting the phone call that Andy had won his first world championship title. This big win was not only a turning point for Andy but also for the island. Andy was a symbol of pride for the island, and many islanders admired his talent on a wave.
