Carve Magazine has just announced that Cotty has won the Best British/Irish Big Wave Surfer Award in their 2015 Peer Poll and to celebrate he’s giving Saltrock customers the chance to win tickets to the premiere of his latest surf film!
Carve Magazine’s poll of peers has voted Cotty as the Best British/Irish Big Wave Surfer 2015, an award which he is both thrilled and shocked to receive.
Humble as ever, Andrew doesn’t regard his surfing style as particularly remarkable and is always quicker to point out the flaws in his ability than to brag about his skills, but even he has to admit that this award from his peers is something special.
When we spoke to him earlier today Cotty told us how stoked he was to win. “Winning an award is epic but winning a peer poll is unbelievable, couldn't quite believe it at first when I heard and thought they were pulling my leg! I've never really rated my surfing I just have personal goals and aim high. Obviously I want to be the best I can be but its more personal goals I have with pushing my own ability and boundaries. So winning the 2015 Carve peer poll for Best Big Wave Surfer in the UK and Ireland has to be a career highlight for me. So stoked.”
As always, Cotty is a perfect example of how self-belief, determination and hard work make dreams come true. Well done Cotty!
But that’s not all. Later this month he is also screening the latest epic instalment of his global search for monster waves this month, and we’re thrilled to be able to offer our customers the chance to join him at the premieres at either Red Bull HQ in London or The Landmark Theatre in Ilfracombe.
