“I started really concentrating on my boards and working on my equipment in 2008. Since that time big wave surfboards have changed completely. They used to come with the narrower outline, a lot of rocker and ligtweighted” says Grant “Twig” Baker.

Twiggy (Durban, South Africa, 1973) has been in the front row of big wave surfing since his breakthrough win in Mavericks in 2006. In 2014 this is Twig’s vision on his equipment: “With the new boards, fuller nose, a little more volume, wider tail to loosen them up, the new fin placement and rocker line, boards are easier to ride in big waves.”

“For the average guy it has made the boards a lot easier to ride and big waves more accessible. And for the good guy, it has given them a platform to really start performing in big waves (huge waves).”

Grant “Twig” Baker has put some time in the factory this autumn of 2014. In between big wave talks, foam and shaping hours, Twig has put the boards to test in Meñakoz. He has shared some amazing sessions (both small and big) with local surfers from the Basque Country. This is Twig’s quiver for Europe. All tested in European waves and well approved by the ASP Big Wave World Champ. It’s now available in different sizes:

Pukas and Twiggy are excited to have Mikel Agote onboard as the official shaper for this iconic collaboration. Mikel is a big wave charger himself and has been doing the biggest rhino-chasers for the last decade. With all the insights from Twig, Mikel has now been able to step up his game and manufacture some of the most beautiful and best guns in the game.
