I have been working with Andrew Cotton and Rob at Tiki, on a floatation device. Here’s Andrew doing some R&D in the first version.
What the video doesn’t show is his 17 second hold down, survived (in small part) due to the bouyancy of the vest. We are now on the revised second version. Cotty has towed Nazare and Mullaghmore, paddled Belharra at size. So far so good. More info to follow Surfing: Andrew Cotton, Garret McNamara, Hugo Vau Edit: Polvo

Team rider Andrew Cotton at Mullaghmore, Ireland in March 2012 wearing the Tiki Zepha.
This wetsuit began as a concept back in 2009. Working with Tiki’s wetsuit guru Rob Legge we developed it over 2 years. In Winter 2011-12 it was released under the name the Zepha. This is Tiki team rider Andrew Cotton at Mullaghmore, Ireland in March 2012 wearing the Zepha. The wave was nominated in 2 XXL categories and shortlisted in the top 5 for Biggest Wave. It made the BBC, SKY news and ESPN. Credits: Surfing Andrew Cotton // Jetski driving by Al Mennie // Wetsuit design Phil Bridges and Rob Legge, Tiki // Board by Gulf Stream // Picture David Olsthoorn
