“I was in Indo for that amazing run of swell including the biggest in many years. For three weeks we surfed and foiled our brains out and both the waves that were best for foiling are pretty hollow and shallow so it was a learning curve for me but once I got them sussed out I had a great time. I stayed in the central Mentawis with Gideon from Bilou Beach bungalows and he is the best guide around and managed to find me this amazing right hander for both surfing and foiling and it was the perfect place to test my new F-ONE equipment for both. Its great to be able to travel with one board that is perfect for small wave surfing and foiling and with some quick turns of the screws you can switch from one discipline to another. The progression of foiling is happening so fast right now and its epic to be involved in the sport as we move forward and learn.” Grant Twiggy Baker
David Tonijuan has been competing in the world tour but he needed something else, to feel free in the water again, happy and enjoying every moment like when he started. He has started his own tour, starting in Greece where the place is gorgeous and the conditions for freestyle are probably amongst the best in the world!
We could not be more proud of Grant ” Twiggy” Baker, who earlier today claims the Nazare challenge in Praia do Norte in Portugal in epic conditions. Twig is a member of the F-One foil team, an accomplished watermen and now considered a veteran in big wave competition. He has done it for so many years, his last win was in Puerto Escondido last year. He won Mavericks twice already, last time in 2013. There are so many young chargers who are gunning for the top prizes nowadays. big congrats Twig !
