Happy Birthday A.I. (1978 - 2010). Miss you.

Iconic legend Andy Iron's live's on in our heart and minds and Axel...“Andy was an absolutely gifted individual. I’m lucky to have known him and had the times we had together. I feel blessed that we worked through the differences we had and I was able to learn what I’m made of because of Andy. I got to know a happy, funny, innocent kid who was happy to live every second with the people he loved. I’m so sad. My thoughts are with Bruce and Lyndie and their parents and all of his many friends around the world. It’s a huge and far too premature loss for all of us"...

Team Hawaii takes the Gold at ISA World Masters

Surf News, 22 July, 2012 : With a team groomed in challenging, barreling conditions along the famed North Shore of Oahu, Hawaii’s team was tailor-made for the conditions at Colorado Beach at Hacienda Iguana. Surfing in well-overhead waves on the final day of competition, the Hawaiians won six individual medals at the Nicaragua ISA World Surfing Championship, and clinched the Team Gold Medal and the perpetual Eduardo Arena Trophy.

“The depth of the talent that we brought with us – Sunny [Garcia], Kaipo [Jaquias] and Rochelle [Ballard] – was a pretty big edge to begin with, and then to have Nelson, who’s one of the coolest dudes in the world, and Glenn, who is a master shaper, it was a really good dynamic,” said Mike Latronic, who was both a competitor and team manager for the Hawaiians.

The International Shark Attack File (ISAF) 2011 Worldwide Shark Attack Summary

The International Shark Attack File (ISAF) investigated 125 alleged incidents of shark-human interaction occurring worldwide in 2011. Upon review, 75 of these incidents represented confirmed cases of unprovoked shark attack on humans. "Unprovoked attacks" are defined as incidents where an attack on a live human by a shark occurs in its natural habitat without human provocation of the shark. Incidents involving sharks and divers in public aquaria or research holding-pens, shark-inflicted scavenge damage to already dead humans (most often drowning victims), attacks on boats, and provoked incidents occurring in or out of the water are not considered unprovoked attacks. "Provoked attacks" usually occur when...

Pacific teams hold lead Day 5 of ISA World Masters.

Surf News, 19 July, 2012 :  Just three days until the finals, the action on Day 5 of the Nicaragua ISA World Masters Surfing Championship continued to reduce the number of competitors and further intensified the battle for Team Gold and the perpetual Eduardo Arena Trophy.

Heats started two hours later this morning to allow for optimal tide and winds, in order to equip the world’s best over-35-year-old surfers with ample opportunity to find the waves with the highest scoring potential at Colorado Beach at Hacienda Iguana. Waves remained in the three to four-foot range, with plenty of long, open faces for big turns and the occasional barrel.


Mike Latronic's a jack of all trades, publisher, team manager, and he can still get pitted with the best of them. Here he is in deep at the ISA World Masters. Check this ESPN interview!

Shawn Parkin/ISA

From Mike Latronic's adolescent angst as a journalism student at Waialua High School, to his run as an aspiring pro surfer, to his current gig as Hawaiian surf media mogul, the man's been around. His latest endeavor consists of helping Hawaii's national team, for lack of a better term, achieve international success. In June he helped manage the junior squad to ISA gold in Panama, and now he's in Nicaragua with the masters team, where he hopes to keep the momentum going at the ISA World Masters Championships. ESPN Surfing sat down with him to see why the islands have been such a force recently, and true to form, he had something to say.
