The UK might not be the first place that comes to mind when you think of big wave surfing but Andrew Cotton is changing that. When Andrew left school he initially worked at a surfboard factory until age 25 when he re-trained as a plumber and began to realize his passion was in big wave surfing. In 2012 he towed American surfer Garrett McNamara into what the Guinness Book of World Records confirmed as the biggest wave ever surfed. Since then, Andrew has surfed some massive waves himself and is continuously searching for the biggest wave.
