ANDY IRONS

I’ve just seen what has to be one of the best documentaries ever made, especially when it comes to extreme sports and lifestyle. It’s the 2018 film Andy Irons: Kissed by God.

Directed by Steve and Todd Jones, it tells the story of a three-time world surfing champion who died at 32 after a lifelong struggle with bipolar disorder and addiction. You can view it for free on Amazon Prime now. Powerful stuff.
