Check out the bad taste of some clown who two days after Andy Irons dies he tries to cash in on a fin signed by Andy himself. The trade me listing caught the eye of The Green Lantern who then gave him a serving and thus getting blacklisted on Trade Me, Greeny then mentioned it on FaceBook and then everyone gave the guy a serving for his disrespect. I’m pretty sure Andy will be dishing up the seller a lifetime of closeouts and shark encounters from the other side.
Andy Irons signed surfboard fin. Very rare.

I can’t believe you are trying to make money of someones death, that is so immoral. Many people are grieving over this sad loss and to see something like this doesn’t help. framed4

Seller Comment: So heartening and touching to see you all love Andy so much. Now, if you really love him that much, you would of course want a memento to cherish for the rest of your lives. So bid up bid up people…. Don’t be shy now – I know many of your are passionate (although not necessarily literate). This is the only fin of its kind in the country so you are guaranteed to secure a piece of history. Love you all…… 7:55 am, Fri 5 Nov
