Cotty aiming for Guiness World Record for biggest wave ridden
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 28 May, 2015 - North Devon, England - Today the Western Morning news reports that Saltock has signed on North Devon local, and international big wave surfer, Andrew Cotton to their professional team.
Cotty, as Andrew is known, is one of a small group of big wave surfers putting the UK on the international map. In 2012 and 2014 Cotty was nominated for WSL XXL Awaards.
But Cotty has his sights set on breaking the Guiness record for biggest wave ridden.
“I know I’m capable (of breaking the world record) but I’m waiting for the perfect conditions,” Cotty told Western Morning News. “I’m not totally sure of the height of the biggest wave I’ve surfed, but I know it would have been in Nazare, Portugal. It’s probably where the biggest waves in the world break, a real natural wonder.”
