A TRIBUTE TO A GREAT SURFER












It is kind of sad the surf world lost one of the greatest surfer precisely one year ago, Andy Irons. Allan Thomas wrote a song to his tribute, how he remember him after 28 years on the island Kauai - The longest ride. Featuring backing vocals are David Crosby & Graham Nash.

"From breaks around the world 
We paddled out with flower leis 
Say Aloha 'Oe 
To one Kauai born and raised 
Though we didn't know him well 
Teardrops fell 
When they poured his ashes down 
Down into the blue 


* May you rip in peace brudda Andy 
In waves that never end "

Det är verkligen sorgligt för precis ett år sedan förlorade surfvärlden en av de verkligt stora, Andy Irons. Allan Thomas skrev låten "The Longest Ride" till minne av hur han kommer ihåg Andy från sina 28 år på ön Kauai. De som sjunger med honom på låten är David Crosby & Graham Nash. 



"From breaks around the world 
We paddled out with flower leis 
Say Aloha 'Oe 
To one Kauai born and raised 
Though we didn't know him well 
Teardrops fell 
When they poured his ashes down 
Down into the blue 


* May you rip in peace brudda Andy 
In waves that never end "
