Is it me or does Andy Irons travel more now than he ever did while on tour? One minute he's on a trip to the far reaches of the Pacific, the next he's at the NYC premier of A Fly In The Champagne. Word is he might make it to the Occy Grom comp this weekend in Huntington Beach too…Check the Billablog about the trip back East below…
Andy Irons puttin’ in work at the Billabong Store in New York City.
Three-time world champion Andy Irons made the trek from Kauai out east to the Big Apple for a few days. After shooting with Fuel TV, Andy stopped off for a visit at the Billabong Times Square store where he sat down for an autograph session. People from around the globe came in to take photos while he signed a fresh new poster for them. After Times Square, Andy and crew cruised down to the Herald Square Bong store for another signing. Don't underestimate the NYC surf scene. Guys came down with their own boards to have Andy sign them.
Surf fans from all around New York made it to the premier of A Fly In The Champagne.
After a long day touring the city, the crew headed down to Soho for the premier of A Fly in the Champagne at the popular lounge Katra. The place has an unreal lay out with a large VIP area upstairs and a darker more mysterious dance hall below. The eclectic New York frothed over the film and were so stoked Andy made it out for the premier.
The festivities continued into the night with an after party at hot spot Southside. The place was alive and kickin' with the DJ spinning records for everyone's taste. Didn't hurt there was a models birthday party going on to keep the crowd fired up! There was a report that Montauk ripper and Billabong tour veteran Nickboy made it out to the premier.

Its safe to say Billabong did the City right. The crew cruised Central Park and even made the trip to the "Top of the Rock" at Rockefeller center to capture some breathtaking views of the city from above.
