Andy Irons: Kissed by God
The Andy Irons Story is a documentary film that focuses on the true, untold story of one of the world’s most prolific surfers, three-time world champion surfer - Andy Irons. The intent of the film is to show the unfiltered life of Andy Irons, one that was filled with energy, passion, success, and challenges. Challenges that pushed Andy to the brink and were both the best parts of Andy and the hardest to handle.
The filmmakers, Steve and Todd Jones, wanted to create a film that captured the true essence of Andy Irons - his family, his friends, and those who later realized a friendship that at times was hard to understand. The film features in-depth interviews with Andy’s brother Bruce Irons, his wife Lyndie Irons, Joel Parkinson, Nathan Fletcher, Sunny Garcia, and Kelly Slater. Andy’s friends, family, and competitors share their stories of intimacy and fire with Andy Irons throughout the film. The unabashedly honest testimonials compel the story and reveal the very real side of Andy.
This is not a film about surfing; this is a film about a person that lived life to its fullest at the top of his industry, but did so facing insurmountable internal challenges. This story is about everything that made Andy Irons the man he was.
