Did you miss Chapter 2 of Andy Irons and the Radicals? We’re not mad, just disappointed. Below is a quick brush up on five things we learned, but I’d play it safe and watch the whole video.

The Log Cabins house is where it all started.

Shane Beschen rented out a beachfront house to Andy Irons and the rest of the …Lost crew. Some nights were quiet, but most were rowdy. Guests stayed for time spans ranging from two days to two weeks. The only certainty on each day’s itinerary was endless hours of surfing and the constant watching of surf films.


When’s the last time you heard from Chris Ward? The …Lost film star and surf icon from San Clemente stepped in front of the camera to talk about his younger years with Andy Irons. Despite getting into a mid-contest fight with Andy as a teenager, the two actually became pretty close during Wardo’s trips to the North Shore.

The Influence of the …Lost Crew On Mason Ho

As a prince in one of Hawaii’s royal surfing families, Mason Ho had many influences. While most were cut from the same genetic cloth, some were from external sources. Specifically Andy Irons and the …Lost crew. Mason considers the …Lost movies to be his “Bibles.”

5’5 x 19 1/4 

After watching a few Tom Curren clips, the boys were craving fish. Matt Biolos shaped a few duos and got them over to the Log Cabins house. The dimensions of those boards: 5’5 x 19 1/4. A set of measurements that permanently altered the state of the standard shortboard.

Andy was quite the board thief.

When it came to finding the right surfboard, Andy Irons struggled. He never felt the hundreds of boards shaped specifically for him did the job, so he sought refuge elsewhere. Elsewhere meaning from Wardo’s side of the house, Parko’s quiver, and JS’s personal collection. When you’re a world champ, you’re allowed to be picky.

Catch all the details here.
