Grant Twiggy Baker comes to F-One and falls for their foils

In this video, hosted by F-One Sup and highlighting their newest team rider Grant ‘Twiggy’ Baker, the World Big Wave Champion in 2014 & 2016 as well as 2x Maverick’s champ in 2006 & 2013, Grant talks candidly on learning how to foil.

“Foiling is something new to do in the ocean. Now when it’s flat and there’s no wind, foiling is perfect. To have all of this equipment available to me through F-One is a real blessing. ” – GTB

Grant “Twiggy” Baker was born in 1973 and is from Dubarn, South Africa.   Soon after that Twiggy surfed his first wave.  What’s unfolded from there is a man on a mission, totally addicted to the surf which would eventually become his full-time occupation.  This ocean athlete spends his life surfing different conditions through his multiple modalities of kiteboarding, surfing, stand up paddling and – now – foiling.

F-One is excited to bring this great legend onto their team of athletes.  To learn MORE about their products, including foils, check out the website here:
