The BackStory: Andy Irons

Hawaii is a truly unique place. Comprising Hawaii are the individual islands, and on those islands are the subcultures. Within those subcultures is surfing. Surf culture is global, but the North Shore of Oahu is considered the Mecca. I’ve been many times, but I’m no closer to being a part of this world than when I made my first trip. It’s closed to people like me, for the most part, but that’s okay, so are many of the other subcultures I’ve covered. You can’t spend any amount of time on the North Shore and not come away with the place seared in your memory.
