Cotty On The Nazaré Wave That Changed His Life
Although he didn't end up scooping the prestigious Billabong XXL Award for it, Andrew Cotton's wave still proved one of last winter's biggest highlights.
In this final episode of Behind the Lines, Andrew Cotton's big wave season comes to a climax back where it all began in Nazaré, Portugal. One a wild, windy day at North Canyon he is whipped into a beast by Garrett McNamara that goes on to be touted by some of the world's media as the biggest wave ever surfed. In the end, he doesn't scoop the prestigious Billabong XXL Award - there were bigger waves surfed last winter. But more important is Andrew's own take on events that day: with a brutally honest post-surf interview he demonstrates a hunger and humility that should stand him in good stead for XXL sessions to come.
