Irons brothers to hold contest for youth surfers

Advertiser Staff

If Andy and Bruce Irons can become successful professional surfers out of Kaua'i, maybe others can do it, too.

That's the message that will be sent out on Saturday at the inaugural Irons Brothers Pine Trees Classic youth surfing contest.

"It's a way for Andy and Bruce to give back to the people and place that helped them to get where they are now," said their father and manager, Phil Irons.

The contest will be held at Pine Trees in Hanalei, the spot where the Irons brothers learned how to surf. Boys and girls ages 14 and younger can enter for free.

The Irons family will cover the entire cost of the event, but entries will be limited to the first 110. Prizes will also be awarded courtesy of the sponsors of the Irons brothers.

"It's great for the surfing community on Kaua'i and great for family values in general," said Nelson Togioka, who will serve as contest director.

For entry information, call the Hawaiian Surfing Federation of Kaua'i at 338-1952.
