    I really want to find out why he didn't go to a hospital in puerto rico....maybe he just wanted to try to see his family. What a weird, sad, and heartbreaking tragedy. bummed.

    quit the hating

    people need to stop debating about whether or not his passing deserves any more or less respect based on the fact that drug overdose could have been involved, whether or not it was at all. nobody is perfect, he'll always be rememberd as a world champion, an incredible athlete and pioneer for the sport, and he's widowing a pregnant wife. so show him the respect he deserves and shut the hell up about the fact that he may or may not have been addicted to drugs or OD'd. if anything we should sympathize for his struggle with addiction if that is the case.

    RIP Andy

    seriously. If you stuck up pricks discount his character because of a bottle of pills WHEN HE HAD BEEN SICK FOR DAYS than I think that shows just how closed minded you really are. You try to maintain a decent sleep schedule flying around the world weekly. Does your back hurt? Imagine how it feels when AI takes a TOH dredger on the head trying to entertain you. Think before you speak and DEFINITELY dont go spreading sh!t like that before the autopsy comes out. Innocent until proven guilty, in life or death.

    Again, much love and respect to the family.

    Who cares about the drug situation. You people act like you're all angels, step into reality and wake up. ****ing toys. People are not perfect, and furthermore, at this point, who cares about how he died, how he lived is far more important. Whatever.

    I think his surfing was an inspiration, in some form/level or another, to anyone who rides a wave. He was a master. And he lived an icredible life, even though it got cut off awful short. RIP.

    Methadone is a synthetic opiate that is mainly used to ween people off of an opiate addiction (Heroin, Oxy, Perc) and is prescribed by a doctor.

    Methamphetamines are stimulants that are deffinatly not prescribed by a doctor.

    Both are abused recreationaly and are very dangerous and addictive. Methadone is basically a legal alternative to heroin and other illegal opiates.


    Andy was found with Methadone in his room supposedly.

    Methadone is a synthetic opioid (drug acting similar to morphine) pain killer, whereas methamphetamine is a stimulant of the central nervous system.

    being 16th in the world in a sport such as surfing i dont see how u can be a drug addict and be surfing at the level of competing he was surfing at, he took sick in portugal, had been sick for a few days before going to PR. heres an article with owen wright who was also sick, seems a lot of others were sick too.

    For all of you that are arguing over how he died you should be ashamed of yourselves! We have just loss a surfing legend! & all you guys are worried about is how he died! We should be using this forum to discuss the greatness he has done for the surfing community and to pay are respect to him! The man died before he got to see his child's face! My heart goes out to andy's wife, family, friends, and hawaii! R.I.P. Andy!

    all i know is that today when i got down to the beach to take some photos of some friends as i cant surf for 3 weeks due to seperated shoulder, i stopped in my shop and all that was being talked about was how great AI was and it was the same on the beach between surfers was how great AI was and that we trully lost a legend.

    What can one say,..either you felt/feel it or you did/do not. So many people are hurting over this, people that never even knew him,....
