In his defense, he said in the Outside interview that he didn't hook up what Andy was looking for. He did admit to getting some blow for him, Andy and a few other dudes.

But, addicts always find a way and he said he put Andy in a cab that was headed to the airport and told the driver not to stop anywhere, no matter what. Then tipped him $100.

Tired of all the references with no links. I know nothing of this story personally. I just looked up all the references. Public information here.



Here is the article. https://www.outsideonline.com/1818666/crashing-down It's the 2nd piece that Brad Melekian did on Andy's death. Here are some relevant qoutes for this conversation.

IRONS ARRIVED IN MIAMI late on Halloween night. Carlos Bam Bam Del Olmo, a 45-year-old pro surfer and sometime actor whod known Irons since he was 13, got a call at 11:58. Irons was at Mangos, a nightclub on Ocean Drive, and he wanted to have some fun.

Irons didnt appear sick, and his flight to Dallas didnt leave until 6:30 a.m. He just wanted to have a good time, says Del Olmo. He asked me if we could get some coke. I was like, Dude, youre in fooking Miami. Irons then asked whether Del Olmo knew how to get another more serious drug, though Del Olmo wouldnt say what it was. I was not prepared to hear what came out of Andys mouth, he says. I shut him down immediately.

The cab ride was $30. I gave him a $50 tip and I said to him, Yo, brother, thats Andy Irons, three-time world champion from Hawaii, in the back seat of your car. I dont give a fook if he wants to stop at 7-Eleven for water, you dont stop. When you get to the airport, you walk him in to the American Airlines desk, and you make sure he gets on that plane. You got that?

candyman's insta post about the opioud [sic] epidemic "killing the essence of mankind" combined with this quip:

Irons then asked whether Del Olmo knew how to get another more serious drug, though Del Olmo wouldnt say what it was. I was not prepared to hear what came out of Andys mouth, he says. I shut him down immediately.

seems to infer what drug ai was asking for.

poor lindsey.

I find it amazing that some of these guys (Bruce, for example) seem to have no idea how utterly ridiculous they look in some of their Instagram posts. Are they really that out of touch with reality and completely unaware of their self-portrayal?

If they had grown up in Kentucky, they would be middle aged country bumpkin hick washed up HS quarterbacks. If you think of them in that fashion, it all makes a lot more sense. It's just because they had access to incredible waves do you think of them as anything more.

Decades of industry hand jobs will to that to a guy. Bruce is still 18 in his mind.

what a loving and concerned friend to make sure the immigrant cab driver was aware that it was a surfing champion in his cab and that he need to walk him to the gate - gotta love bam bam stories - love the "you got
that " at the end. hahahah. world champ whose well being was passed on to
a cabbie. what a support system billabong

The cab ride was $30. I gave him a $50 tip and I said to him, Yo, brother, thats Andy Irons, three-time world champion from Hawaii, in the back seat of your car.

Yeah, not much self-reflection going on there. Just some emo/teenage attention-seeking posturing: Don't smile, chin up, look cool. Pretty pathetic, to be honest. However, all the reports say that Bruce puts some heart into the movie. Maybe the Instagram posturing is just for marketing purposes...

Best article I've read on it by the always awesome Longtom...
