ANDREW COTTON- OFFICIAL NELSCOTT REEF PRO-AM INVITEE

ANDREW COTTON BIO-

Andrew Cotton started surfing at the age of seven on the North Devon coast, born in Plymouth England (PLH).

His original focus was on helping to pioneer big wave spots in Ireland, and more recently he turned his attention to Nazare, Portugal.

He has garnered Numerous Billabong XXL entries.  Andrew came to wider attention in 2012 when he towed American surfer Garrett McNamara into what the Guinness Book of World Records confirmed as the biggest wave ever surfed. He also has a number of indisputably big waves under his belt, one or two of which have caused debate in the press as to whether they are even bigger than Garret’s record.

Andrew Cotton has been helping to push the boundaries as to what was thought possible in big wave surfing,  and put Great Britain firmly on the surfing map.
