Taj beats Wilko in the Final to Win the O'Niell CWC 1120am HI Time.

Surf News, 6 November, 2012 The O’Neill Coldwater Classic, Stop No. 9 of 10 on the ASP World Championship Tour (WCT). Taj was in form the entire event as was Wilko; it was a close heat; Taj was hungry for another win this year. Breaking it down all Wilko had to do was finish one wave and he would have won. So many Pros couldnt handle the end section at Steamer. Many would say the Lane won this event.

Let's take a rare 10,000 mile detour East & see Sandy

As most people are busy cleaning up and assessing the damage left by Sandy, surfers are taking advantage of the heavy seas to get their adrenaline fix.

From South Florida to New York’s Rockaway Beach, surfers grabbed their boards and wetsuits – both before and after the storm – to rip it up on waves that were anywhere between 5 feet high to almost double overhead.


Andy Irons Remembered 3 Years After Passing Away

 Another year has gone by, but all our memories of Andy Irons remain as strong as ever. On this second anniversary of his passing (November 2nd) we celebrate his life and impact on surfing and all those who loved him for who he was.  The entire Billabong family wishes to take a moment to join the surfing world in remembering one of the greatest surfers and personalities our sport has ever known.

 Out of respect and acknowledgement of Andy's legacy we continue to dedicate the Billabong Pipe Masters in his memory.

 Billabong is also proud to announce the new global AI Forever collection for release in Summer 2013 in stores and online March 15, in the USA. Proceeds from the AI Forever line will go toward ongoing guaranteed support for Andy's wife Lyndie and young son Axel.

 Andy Irons continues to touch hearts and minds of so many in the surf community - "AI Forever" says it all!

 Aloha, Andy with love. -  The Billabong International Family
