Andrew Cotton and Garret McNamara at XXL Nazare

by on Monday 3rd February, 2014   34043 Visits   Comments

Andrew Cotton and Garret McNamara at XXL Nazare. When the North Atlantic cooked up a seasonal serving of cataclysmic energy, this duo were waiting in Nazaré, Portugal, to catch the reverberations head-on.

Check out this rough cut from yesterday’s storm and try not to get cold sweats when the surfer gets mowed down by the whitewater at the end. You can follow Cotton and McNamara this spring in their new series, Behind the Lines as they attempt to beat Garrett’s world record for the biggest wave ever surfed.
