With the start of the Quiksilver Pro France commencing October 6th, it’s hard not to think back at what was one of the most epic final heats the event has seen. The 2004 Quik Pro France finals day matchup was between none other than Andy and Bruce Irons, with Andy coming out on top after carving the 8-10 foot sections. Quicksilver put together a tribute for the legendary Andy Irons from his performances at the Quik Pro France, to get ready for the much anticipated event.
The 2004 final was some of the best surfing by Andy, whom we all miss dearly. The 2004 final was the only one that both Andy and Bruce were able to compete against each other in, which Bruce said, ‘was just like being at home’. Quiksilver’s tribute video above also sheds some light from some of Andy’s peers, competitors, and current pros on the tour. Best of luck to all those competing at the 2015 Quik Pro France, and stay tuned for results!
