Durban-born photographer and digital content creator, Andy Carrie – whose life was tragically cut short – was honoured in the most epic way!


Andy Carrie, a 28-year-old lost his life following a tragic motorbike accident on Saturday, 3rd December 2016. He was allegedly hit by a drunk driver on Musgrave Road in Durban.

Since his passing social media has been flooded with messages from all over the world; messages filled with heartache, sadness and grief but also messages celebrating the life of Andy, remembering the person he was, celebrating the way he lived life.

Andy Carrie was a giant, larger in life than the Elephant rock he dreamed of visiting, and like all creative legends his force will live on.

Everyone that knew Carrie also knew how much he lived and loved life, family, friends and adventure. So friends and family started an initiative called #LiveLikeAndy in honour of the incredible human being.


“This tribute just is a small gesture of how many lives you have touched, and I pray that your legacy continues.”

Andy’s friends and family also decided to honour him with a paddle out since he loved surfing so much. The Carrie Family issued this message on the Andy Carrie Celebration Service page.

“We’ve been so incredibly moved by all of your tributes to our beautiful brother and son, he lived such a full life and deserves to be rejoiced and celebrated in true Andy style. We’d love you to join us as we honour the amazing legacy that he’s left us with.”

“We love you all, and cannot tell you how much we appreciate all the words and memories flooding through. It’s been incredible.”

And then hundreds of people arrived at the beach to honour Andy in the most epic way.
