The wave could be a potential world record breaker, and is being entered into the Billabong XXL Ride of the Year.

NORTH Devon’s big wave surfer Andrew Cotton may have topped his potentially world record breaking ride from last year.

In October the plumber from Braunton caught a wave estimated to be around 80ft.

But on Sunday Cotton was in the same spot at Nazaré in Portugal where he caught a potentially bigger wave.

The ride has been entered into the Billabong XXL Ride of the Year Entry and in March it will be announced whether Cotton has scored the world record.

Watch the video above to see him taking on the monster wave.
