Chapter II: “The Circus Is Burning” with Andrew “Cotty” Cotton

Then she sits down for an intimate conversation with big wave surfer Andrew “Cotty” Cotton to talk about his previous life as a plumber, why he’s Garrett McNamara’s “chosen one” and how he balances his unorthodox career with being a dad.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
