    BELLS BEACH, Victoria/Australia (Wednesday, April 20, 2011) – The Rip Curl Pro Bells Beach presented by Ford Ranger, the second stop on the 2011 ASP World Title season, with Round 1 underway in pumping four-to-six foot (1.5 to 2 metre waves) at the iconic break of Bells Beach. World no.13 Adam Melling (Lennox Head, Aus) opened quickly with a 7.33 score to put Josh Kerr (Gold Coast, Aus) and world no.2 Taj Burrow (W.A.) on the back foot from his opening ride in the second heat of round one.. The 26 year-old then used his final ride a 7.17 to secure victory and a round three berth. Kerr and Burrow relegated into the sudden death round two heats. A late challenge, by Kerr not enough for victory and an in-form Burrow failing to capitalize on his opening maneuvers to finish third. Melling said the match-up was always going to be tough one. Melling added that it was great to see classic Bells conditions for the opening round of the Rip Curl Pro. Former two time world champion Mick Fanning enjoyed a strong opening round win to advance directly into round three - vision to be included in main feed later today. Up later this morning will be ten time world champion Kelly Slater (USA) and former event champion Joel Parkinson (Aus). The Rip Curl Pro Bells Beach presented by FORD will be webcast LIVE via www.live.ripcurl.com and broadcast live on Fuel TV in Australia and ESPN in Brazil. The Rip Curl Women’s Pro Bells Beach presented Ford Fiesta is on standby today and will open up with Chelsea Hedges (AUS), 27, Sofia Mulanovich (PER), 27, and Rebecca Woods (BRA), 26, in Heat 1 of Round 1 when competition commences.

                  • August Issue 2011 Surfing Magazine


                    from SURFING Magazine / Added

                    “Whoa. Nobody’s doing that.” August Issue 2011 Surfing MagazineThis issue took shape around that reverent exclamation. Around unique and remarkable things that made us stop in our robot tracks for a second to actually think: Well, would you look at that? Hmm, how ‘bout that? Shit, check that out. And then…whoa. Nobody’s doing that. Nobody was turning heads at Pipe on a Monday and then back galloping toward art-world acclaim by, say, Thursday afternoon — except Danny Fuller; and nobody was caring less while quietly doing more than Josh Kerr; and nobody was even approaching whatever the hell Christian Fletcher has called day-to-day life for the past three decades; etc. There were more examples than pages in the magazine. But then we realized: Nobody’s done Andy right. Nobody’s said what we think needs to be said about the man and his life and his death. Nobody’s spoken for us and for people who feel the way we did…do…about Andy Irons (and if you’re still picking up this magazine every month, you might well be one of those people). In the atom bomb of sadness and controversy and publicity-seeking that followed Andy’s passing last November, plenty has been said and whispered, written and blogged, assumed and speculated. So much noise. None of it striking quite the right chord. None of it leaving us with the feeling that we still have when we think of Andy. That is until staff writer Chas Smith walked through my door, sat in my office — the very same office I was in when punched with the initial news of Andy’s death — and read, aloud, an early draft of his rather poetic ode to AI [Andy’s Way, pg 90]. As he read, I recalled things about Andy. Memories flooded back. Admiration welled up again, even in spite of many months in which the outside world has attempted to sully Andy and drag him through the streets and use his demise to push an agenda that was never his own. And I finally felt close to satisfied. What Chas has written is not perfect and it is not academically exhaustive and it is not “investigative journalism,” but I assure you the piece hits its target. It is meant as nothing more than a reminder — for us, you and I, the ones who knew an Andy no coroner’s report can touch. The ones who remember him for being complex and sincere and amazing, the everlasting definition of passion and spontaneity in and out of the water — something we greatly miss and will always appreciate. No matter what. The piece belongs in SURFING Magazine. It isn’t for those on the outside trying to sling mud or rubberneck, though Andy’s tragedy opens the door for plenty of that as well. It’s just for us: actual surfers who care to be reminded of the intense, fevered man who’s become, for better or worse, immortal. Because we’re pretty sure nobody’s doing that, either. —Travis Ferré
