The name Bruce Irons is synonymous with innovation, progression and style in surfing. He is an icon of the anti-establishment movement within the sport and is a hero to frothing grommets all over the world. With his signature film, aptly titled “The Bruce Movie”, his long standing reputation as an aerial cowboy and a Banzai Pipeline master, Irons had secured his spot in surfing lore long before cracking the competitive scene. After a shaky rookie season in 2004, which saw him re-qualify through last minute heroics at his beloved Pipe, Bruce then came full circle in 2005 to finish an impressive 9th.
After a solid 5 years on tour, which included taking out the Quiksilver Eddie contest in Hawaii and the Rip Curl search event in 2008, Bruce has decided to take a step back from the world tour in 2009 and continue with his free surfing and take his surfing to another level. Stay tuned, as we have not seen the last of Bruce Irons.
