- Kyle Andrews -

1987 - 1998
Carrying On the Dream, In His Memory

Kyle was born 15th January 1987 in   Mandurah. He returned to Broome with his family when only a few months old. He spent the winter months on Cable Beach in nappies or nothing.

It was a life style he grew up with and at the young age of two could windsurf and surf. As the years went on he continually challenged himself to improve and master skills in all aspects of his life. There was no one who could catch him at running or surf life saving and at the age of ten was Broome Surf Club Junior Ironman. Not only did he take out his age group, but he beat a number of older kids as well.

His real love, however, was fishing and following in his brother Troy's footsteps, he spent his last years catching some of the best fish around Broome. In March of 1997 he was diagnosed with leukaemia and spent 16 months fighting the disease only to lose the battle on the 23rd July 1998.
