Our team at IE Trading Group were fortunate enough to reach out and offer some assistance to the production company behind the up & coming documentary of Andy Irons. They were in the process of promoting a crowdfunding project on Kickstarter (link) for the highly anticipated and deeply emotional documentary film on the life of Andy Irons.

"This is the life story of three-time world champion surfer Andy Irons who died at age 32 from a heart attack with the secondary cause being an acute mixture of drugs. Andy and his brother, Bruce, came from humble beginnings on the small Hawaiian island of Kauai. Director Todd Jones on the Kickstarter campaign. "We privately financed the film. We do not want any corporate influence in it because we wanted to true story to be our soul focus and did not want any external forces influencing our decision process." The film chronicles Andy's struggles with dyslexia, bipolar disease, self-medication, addiction, fame, success, and failure. Andy was a blue collar people's champ who dealt with the same issues millions of people around the world struggle with every day. He died on November 2, 2010. His wife was eight months pregnant with their son, Axel, at the time."
