Trade Me abused….

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.

 R.I.P Andy.

This is a classic longboard fin signed by Andy Irons, now sadly deceased, Mark Occhilupo and Sunny Garcia from when they all made guest surfing appearances at Piha in New Zealand in 2005.

Following the sad and tragic death this week of Andy Irons, this signature is now priceless.

A must-have collector’s item for any true surfing fan with autographs from three of the world’s great surfers.

Photo proof available of the boys signing the fin. Photo of the fin coming soon.

This highly collectable item is now one of the few of its kind in the world.
