North Devon's Andrew Cotton in another international big wave competition

Congratulations to North Devon's own Andrew Cotton for earning another invitation to the prestigious international big wave event The Nelscott Reef Tow In Classic along with tow-in surfing partner Al Mennie. Andrew and Al (both ‘West’ wetsuit team riders) are again the only representatives from Europe. The contest has a three month ‘holding period’ (Ocotber 1st – Dec 31st) to allow for the optimum conditions for the contest organiser, John Forse, to give the competitors the ‘green light’ to travel. This may result in as little as 48 hours notice for Al and Cotty to travel to Oregon. For more in formation visit West Surfing and Surf Europe. The photo is of Andrew training at a secret spot in Ireland.
