Sharp’s Brewery, makers of the UK’s number one cask beer Doom Bar, has launched a national campaign with world renowned British big wave surfer, Andrew Cotton. People across the country have the chance to win a trip to Mullaghmore, Ireland or Nazare, Portugal to watch an XXL session with Cotty surfing the world’s biggest waves, as well as attend a surf training camp at his home in North Devon.
Andrew Cotton from Braunton, North Devon is famous for pushing the boundaries by surfing the world’s biggest waves, and for putting Great Britain firmly on the surfing map. He is one of the few men alive who’s managed to conquer the fear of a 60 foot high big wave. Now, Andrew is spreading his passion for surfing across the UK, by joining Sharp’s Brewery’s ‘There’s an Adventure Brewing’ campaign.
Surfers will get the chance to join Andrew on a two-day surf camp at his home break in Croyde, Devon. Then, Cotty will select a companion to accompany him on an all-expenses paid trip to either Mullaghmore Head, Ireland or Nazare, Portugal, where they could witness him taking on some of the biggest waves on earth. The competition is open to anyone who is passionate about surfing regardless of ability.
“Surfing, and especially Big Wave surfing, is close to my heart, and I’m excited to be sharing this adventure,” said Cotty.
