Andy Irons was an integral part of the KR company in its infancy, as not only a team member but personal friend of the company's founders and we wish to carry on the legend with honor and respect.
Before the tragic passing in late 2010 KR were working on a Ai-2 to accommodate the changes in AI's new boards and new found enthusiasm to be back as one of the worlds top surfing elites. After the shock of his death we were left unsure on how to respectively deal with such a sensitive and emotional situation. Collaborating with AI's long time sponsors BILLABONG we have joined a program to help support his young family and remember the Legend.
We have continued his legacy with the release of his AI forever kinetic racing fin design
Love and respect, RIP AI.
