Lyndie Dupuis Irons is Hawaiian surfer Andy Irons’ wife and mother of the couple’s child. Lyndie was not just his beloved wife, tour companion, manager she also is a fantastic designer. Read on to know all about her, her life, career, family and more plus check the Lyndie’s photos on the great links in our story and our video below.
She was Lyndie Dupuis before becoming Lyndie Irons and was born in the Southern beaches of California (San Diego), where she and her little sister Aimee also grew up. Lyndie met her beloved husband when she was doing a modeling job (she started modeling at age 15) for Billabong (his most recent sponsor at that time) in Tavarua, Fiji although both were in a relationship at the time, both reconnected some time after in Encinitas, San Diego where she was living and both were single. They started dating officially on June 24 about 9 years ago more or less.
Lyndie joined him on every surfing competition around the world. Soon she became not just his travel companion but also his manager and under that new position she took care of every single detail like interviews, emails, travel plans and pretty much everything to help him focus on surfing, which is why he gave her a lot of credit for his success.
“She has a lot to do with my success. Without her, nothing in my life would work,” he says. “I would fall off the tracks.”
They got engaged 4 years later on the beach in Fiji while taking a walk together just to find “Will you marry me” written on the sand following with him officially getting on one knee, something that Lyndie describes as awfully romantic and perfect even though at first the proposal included a fake diamond ring, but they bought a real one after.
They got married on November 25, 2007 in Anini Beach near Hanalei Bay in Princeville, Kauai. The invitations were designed by Lyndie, sent without the location. She got help from her best friend Amy and Deanna Schafer of I Do Weddings, created the wedding any girl would want.
Andy wore Calvin Klein, while Lyndie wore a stunning white silk dress, the ceremony was officiated by Calvin Ho (Hawaiian Minister). The atmosphere was magnificent, filled with the most beautiful flowers, beautiful music and exquisite cuisine. Check out some pictures of that beautiful day here.
Both wanted to wait a few years after getting married to start having babies, which was just perfect since Lyndie teamed up with Hawaiian local designer and dear friend Naomi Newirth to create their own fashion line Acacia Swimwear, right now they have stores all over Hawaii, California, New Jersey and they have promised to open more very soon. Check out Mr. and Mrs. Irons in a gorgeous photoshoot here.
She found out she was pregnant earlier this year, her baby boy Axel Jason Irons will be born in about 5 to 6 weeks, sadly daddy won’t be there. Tragedy struck Lyndie Irons’ life on November 2, 2010 when at about 9:00 a.m her husband was found dead in his hotel room at the Grand Hyatt hotel in Dallas, apparently he was feeling really sick while competing in Puerto Rico, but he wanted to check with his doctor at home in Hawaii, but a connecting flight delayed him in Dallas, he missed his hotel waking call so when staff checked on him they found him on the bed, for the moment it was reported that Dengue Fever was the cause of his sudden and tragic death. He was just 32 years old.
**UPDATE** On more recent news we found out that Andrew Axel Irons has been born as his mother Lyndie Irons gave birth via cesarean section on December 8th at 8:00 a.m in Kauai, her brother in-law and little Andy Axel’s uncle Bruce was at the hospital. The happy news was revealed by Billabong’s Twitter page. Baby Axel was born just with a perfect timing, Pipe Masters!!!
We officially welcome Andy Axel Irons into the world. All our love to Lyndie and the Irons family.
