A LOOK into the heart and mind of Andrew Cotton, a UK based surfer who is partial to cold water and big waves. All footage was contributed by friends, and shot mostly over the winter of 2011/2013 in Ireland and Portugal. What is it aboutNULL The clip goes a little deeper into what I do really apart from just surf the odd big wave. It takes a lot of commitment to be on the big swells over the winter months not just in mind and body but also in the choices which I’ve made throughout my life. Why did you made itNULL I wanted to make a clip but It was Mikey’s idea and influence, there’s so many surf clips out there with amazing footage and surfing but he wanted to do something just a little different without it costing the earth, All footage was contributed by friends, and shot mostly over the winter of 2011/2012 in Ireland and Portugal and with the help of Bastie who did the beats he came up with this. I hope you enjoy it.
