Andy was in Australia. Halfway through the trophy presentation for the kids on the beach, the rep for Billabong then (Enick (sp) ) got a call out to Andy and they pumped the call out over the beach, through the PA system. It was pretty cool and ALL the kids were really stoked to talk and hear Andy. No matter the discussion on drugs. Andy's SURFING, did speak entirely, for its self. No one on the WSL since the Kelly / Andy rivalry has had that much of an influence on contest or free surfing.

DIdn't see the movie. Looking forward to.

The 2010 Surfer Poll happened about a month after AI passed. Emotions were heavy. When Bruce said a few words even I choked up.
