Big wave surfer Andrew Cotton, a plumber and father of two from Devon, hit the headlines in 2014 when it was rumoured that he had surfed the worldâ€™s biggest wave, estimated at 80ft. In this one-off 30-minute documentary, Andrew and his team of surfers, sailors and adventurers put everything on hold as they secretly chase a wave that emerges only a handful of times each year, giving only hours of warning.
Taking a boat eight miles off the coast of Ireland, the team battle the extreme cold and fierce weather conditions, whilst mapping the oceanâ€™s swell, in order to try to catch one almighty ride. Far from home and with the days getting shorter, frustration sets in, as the window of opportunity gets smaller. With a young family at home, Andrew must balance the normality of the school run, before boarding a plane alone to face one of earthâ€™s deadliest monsters.
