Plumber Impressively Surfs 80-Foot Wave
Andrew Cotton has a way with water. He doubles as a plumber and a professional surfer - and he's hoping to set a new world record as the latter.

The 34-year-old surfed a massive wave off the coast of Portugal, and it might have just broken the Guinness world record for the biggest wave ever surfed -- a record he himself set three months ago.

Cotton will find out if he broke his own record in March. Though he eventually fell off the 80-foot wave, he was completely fine.
