HALF MOON BAY, CA – In what’s been called the Super Bowl of surfing, conditions were perfect to rip it up at this year’s Mavericks competition.

24 Surfers from around the world showed up in Half Moon Bay, California looking for one thing – the perfect ride.

With waves reaching 45-feet high, a fall from grace brings a whole new meaning to wipe-out.

40-year-old Grant “Twiggy” Baker, of South Africa, was the last man standing on his board scoring a perfect 10 for the win.

Congrats Twiggy, or should we say, “Far Out Dude!”
