Another year has gone by, but all our memories of Andy Irons remain as strong as ever. On this second anniversary of his passing (November 2nd) we celebrate his life and impact on surfing and all those who loved him for who he was.  The entire Billabong family wishes to take a moment to join the surfing world in remembering one of the greatest surfers and personalities our sport has ever known.

Out of respect and acknowledgement of Andy's legacy we continue to dedicate the Billabong Pipe Masters in his memory.

Billabong is also proud to announce the new global AI Forever collection for release in Summer 2013 in stores and online March 15, in the USA. Proceeds from the AI Forever line will go toward ongoing guaranteed support for Andy's wife Lyndie and young son Axel.

Andy Irons continues to touch hearts and minds of so many in the surf community - "AI Forever" says it all!

Aloha, Andy with love.

The new AI Forever website -- a tribute to Andy Irons -- will launch on December 8th, in celebration of Axel's second birthday and the starting date of the 2012 Billabong Pipe Masters:
