The Inertia

In preparation for the Billabong Pro Tahiti, which is set to begin today, Billabong just released this clip of Andy Irons discussing a transformative wave at Teahupoo. One that his brother Bruce unwittingly inspired.

“My brother was right there,” said Andy. “And he was going. The only reason I went was to not let him get the glory. I would rather go over the falls, head first into the reef, crushed rather than let him make the barrel, get the shot, cover, talked about, everyone thinks he’s cool…”

[Bruce] went, “You better go, you f*cker.”

So Andy did.


Only the best. We promise.
