Big Wave Updates
Just a few feet from exposed rock, Cotty pulls in
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 16 January, 2015 - Mullaghmore, Ireland is a frustrating wave for web watchers as most from-the-channel-filmed rides see the towsurfer just beyond and outside the barrel. But just a day ago Andrew Cotton nailed a beast at Mullaghmore. Cotty threaded a solid tube at the heaving left that's become the coldwater fodder for Europe's slab hunters. The ride is one of many submitted to the Billabong XXL Awards by Cotton who has been hitting Nazaré at each monster swell.
Cotty's ride is an entry in the Billabong Ride of the Year category. Video by Alex Monteithn
