Andrew Cotton won’t tell you this. Ever. But he’s one of the best, and most dedicated big-wave surfers out there. He’s been on the pioneering end of two of Europe’s most iconic big waves: Ireland’s Mullghamore, and of course, Nazaré . The latter of which has certainly captured the world’s imagination. Andrew, as documented in the recent HBO documentary 100 Foot Wave, joined Garrett McNamara early on to figure out the complicated locale. And of course he towed Garrett into the monster that created the hype around Portugal’s famous point of land.
