In this final episode of Behind the Lines, Andrew Cotton's big wave season comes to a climax back where it all began in Nazaré, Portugal. One a wild, windy day at North Canyon he is whipped into a beast by Garrett McNamara that goes on to be touted by some of the world's media as the biggest wave ever surfed. In the end, he doesn't scoop the prestigious Billabong XXL Award - there were bigger waves surfed last winter. But more important is Andrew's own take on events that day: with a brutally honest post-surf interview he demonstrates a hunger and humility that should leave no one in doubt as to why he is one of the most respected big wave surfers on the planet today.

In this 6-part series we take you inside one historic year with the British big wave surfer, Andrew Cotton. Cotty is the Super Mario of wave riders: a lifeguard, a plumber, and a mild-mannered family man who just happens to hunt monster waves. In 2013 the stars aligned and sent this underground charger a succession of massive swells, but it was up to him to be in the right spot and drop the tow rope when the time came. From the frigid tubes of Mullaghmoore, Ireland, to some of the biggest waves ever ridden in Nazaré Portugal, Cotty was there, etching his name into the history books with every ride. So pop some dramamine, sling on your thickest wetsuit, and hop on the back of the ski, we're bringing you along for the wildest ride of your life.
