Crowds gathered along the cliff tops of Praia do Norte beach, Portugal, watching in awe as Cotton was towed on a jet ski to the top of the wave by fellow record breaking surfer, Garrett McNamara and was left to ride the 80ft wave alone.
Cotton is now awaiting the results of his ride. Judges, Billabong, are set to reveal the news on whether or not a new world record has been made in March 2014.
Is this s new world record? We will soon see!

Yesterday, Shaun White (Team USA), one of the biggest names in the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics, has pulled out of the Slopestyle event declaring that he believes the course to be, ”too risky.”
His decision follows an incident on the course during practice runs in which a Norwegian contestant broke his collarbone. Not long before this, White himself had jarred his knee on the Slopestyle course when practicing and with the risks mounting; he has withdrawn from this event.
It is believed that alterations to the course have now been made in order to safe guard the other contestants.
White will still participate in other events and we will all be watching with bated breath as he attempts to achieve his third Gold Medal for the Halfpipe event. He previously won Gold on the Halfpipe at the 2006 and 2010 Winter Olympics – can he make it a hatrick? We will soon see.
A flying start for Team Great Britain…
British Snowboarder, Jamie Nicholls, got off to an outstanding start this morning, surprising judges and launching himself straight into the finals for the debuting and intimidating Slopstyle event.
Nicholls was competing against Billy Morgan who was more highly favored to win the title but this time Morgan sorely lost out. Morgan will get the chance to compete again at Saturday night’s semi-finals for his place in the final.
With the heat on and Nicholls having secured his place in the finals of the Slopestyle event at the Sochi Winter Olympics, we will be glued to our screens to see him battle for the Slopestyle title.
It’s what every Urban Surfer fan looks forward to – the new collection of Converse shoes.
We’ve received our first new collection of Converse shoes for 2014 and they’re all on the site ready for your perusal!.
All aboard the skate board that is, as it seems golfers are jumping on the bandwagon.
Check out the new boards that allow golfers to ‘surf’ around the golf course. Forget the golf buggy – pretty soon the motorised golf skateboard will be where it’s at.
Golf Boards are designed to last for up to 36 holes and have a gear box at either end or the board. The speed of the board is controlled by a hand held device and the board is made to help golfers cruise over the varied terrains of the course.
The feel of these new boards is said to be similar to that of a skateboard, snowboard, etc.
Will these new boards revolutionise golf in the way snowboards revolutionised skiing?
We will no doubt see over the coming year as the Golf Board will be launched in February 2014.
However, golf aside, lets just sit back and imagine trying one of these motorised boards out at the skate park… I think it’s best to leave it there.

Sometimes all you want is a comfy pair of shoes that will allow you trouble-free skating. When you’re looking at a new pair of skate shoes do you really know what Hellaflex or S-Trac means? Will it provide you with protection when you’re on the half pipe? That’s all you really want to know.
Well, you’ll be pleased to know Globe have a handy tech guide for their shoes. So now you need to fear not what those gobbledygook words actually mean!
