Once you hear of the Irons' Brothers, you never forget them. From their style of surfing to their overall love for family, to the home break they cut their teeth on, you just remember them. Our friend Sean Stanley is one of those guys who has Irons on the mind. He lives in California near a spot where Kaua'i boys Bruce Irons and Reef McIntosh frequent. This winter, he followed the boys back to Hawaii for the peak surf season. Now we get to share his work and get to know him a little. Enjoy this artist profile!

Amazing artist Kevin Ancell working on some board art. You can see more of his work around the North Shore of Kaua'i including a beautiful portrait memorializing Andy Irons.
A beautiful sunset on the North Shore.
And here's a beautiful look at a day in Malibu featuring surf from Dylan Goodale. While the views are very different from Kaua'i, it's a great mental escape.
