Watch: Italo Ferreira channeling Andy Irons

Stu Nettle
Reels

Earlier today, Italo Ferrieira dropped a clip - another one, the fella has been busy - and it's bound to cause deja vu in the older crew: the boatride at the start, the order of waves, the song...of course, the song, which is the key to the device. 

Says Italo: "We decided to re-make one of my favorite Andy Irons' videos. I’m not trying to compare myself to him - never - he is my inspiration to get better and better.

"The movie is called CAMPAIGN. I watch it everyday before my sessions. In Andy’s part, we tried to edit it with the same music and same manoeuvers, but I’m goofy footer - hahaha.

"I hope you guys like it and also get as inspired as I did. Thanks to all of Andy’s family for letting me do it."

Definitely does justice to the original, the boy throws buckets.
How good is it to see longer boards in the AI clip? Andy was brutal!!

Stu's comment on Filepe not free surfing as well as his comp surfing, rang true to me especially with his J Bay comp wave, which he ripped to shreds. It made me think of Italo at the time, as his last clip was full of 10's free surfing, and now this latest one shows how unbelievably well he surfs. That's another level right there.

Sick surfing from Italo. But man, those upside-down backhand snaps AI did were a thing of beauty. Can watch those all day long.

Miss watching AI surf so much. Can see the scowl on his face as he lined up those left lips. Balls to the wall

Italo kills him in the air but for pure aggressive, fuck you, attacking style Andy is ahead of everyone.

I wonder what would of happened to him if he didn't die? Would he of got back to the competitor he was or would he just be putting out mental free surf clips?
To think he did everything he achieved by 32 is mental, he was so fucking sick.
Think he was about 5 years older than me and when you're in your twenties you just don't expect guys like that to die so young.

I'd love to see Bruce get back to what he was

Sadly GF...I don't think Bruce is getting back anywhere near what he was.

I'm not cheap,
But I'm free.

Nice to see Italo in good waves for once. But Andy irons backhand hooks are amazing.

From a surfing perspective.......Andy Irons had it all. Close to as good a style as I've seen plus flair, aggression, guts, confidence and of course freakish ability.

AI tags those backhand wacks at the most critical spot all the time.
