Andrew Cotton Tells the Story behind the Biggest Wave of his Life | Behind the Lines, Ep. 2
In this 6-part series we take you inside one historic year with the British big wave surfer, Andrew Cotton. Cotty is the Super Mario of wave riders: a lifeguard, a plumber, and a mild-mannered family man who just happens to hunt monster waves. In 2013 the stars aligned and sent this underground charger a succession of massive swells, but it was up to him to be in the right spot and drop the tow rope when the time came. From the frigid tubes of Mullaghmoore, Ireland, to some of the biggest waves ever ridden in Nazaré Portugal, Cotty was there, etching his name into the history books with every ride. So pop some dramamine, sling on your thickest wetsuit, and hop on the back of the ski, we're bringing you along for the wildest ride of your life.
