Huge Congratulations to Grant "Twig" Baker for taking home the crown at the Mavericks surf competition. The invite only event takes place in Half Moon Bay, California. Forecasters predicted 40 feet faces and Mother Nature delivered. Twig took the win with a total score of 29.33 after earning the highest score of round 1 with a 10-point ride.
"I feel amazing. There's no feeling like it. Two of my favorite surfers were in the final: Shane Dorian and Greg Long and to beat those guys in a final is an amazing feeling. To win Mavericks... I did it 2006 and eight year later I'm older, slower, but I still have a beat in me," says Grant Baker.
