Reliving the Sights and Sounds of the ‘Andy Irons: Kissed by God’ World Premieres

Teton Gravity Research just finished a three-stop world premiere tour for our new documentary Andy Irons: Kissed by God that served as the emotional bookend to a nearly four-year journey from when we started making the film.

To date, the film has been wonderfully received by those in the surf industry, with publications like  StabSurfer and Beachgrit all giving it top notch reviews and noting the poignant and raw storytelling devoted to humanizing the legend of Andy Irons.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock on the West Coast, you’ve seen that the Eastern Seaboard has been getting pummeled by Hurricane Florence (now Tropical Depression Florence). The record-breaking rain and winds led to a death toll of at least 18, and has left much of the area without power and under water.
