Where some people see the violent power of the sea, he sees opportunity and a chance to push his limits.
Jeep® is excited to welcome extreme surfer Andrew Cotton to its roster of adventure sports athletes.
As the UK’s best big wave surfer, Andrew is the living embodiment of the Renegade spirit – leaving fear at the shore as he stares down awe-inspiring swells.
For Andrew, big wave surfing is his escape from the everyday stresses of life. It’s about getting back in touch with the greater forces of nature, the freedom of adventure, and the time shared with people along the way. But Andrew’s links to Jeep® go beyond just these shared values.
"I spend a lot of time driving my Jeep® Renegade on coastal roads, finding the perfect place to pitch up and surf. The car's off-road capability allows me to go anywhere and hunt out the best surf. I can stick the surfboard on top, fill the car with family or friends, and still have plenty of room for other kit. I'm really excited to have signed with Jeep®."
Putting this to the test, Andrew and his Jeep® Renegade will appear in ‘Andrew Cotton: Wild Atlantic Way’. A three-part web series, Andrew will explore the Wild Atlantic Way coastal road, which runs the length of Ireland's western coast, exploring hidden surf spots in his hunt for epic rides. Join Andrew as he redefines what’s possible on a surfboard.
Outside the world of big wave surfing, Jeep® is donning its wetsuit as exclusive Global Partner to the World Surf League (WSL) for 2016. The globetrotting tour will check in at exotic locations including Brazil, Fiji and South Africa before winding up in Hawaii at the end of the year. It’s a chance to wonder at how each surfer, like the Jeep® driver, commands nature with skill and technology.
