World-class surfer Grant "Twiggy" Baker of Durban, South Africa has officially signed onto the Cabrinha team. Twiggy is a hellman when it comes to big surf and we are stoked he is joining the kite world. He took the 2007 XXL big wave title for a 60 ft monster at Dungeons and is nominated for all categories in 2008. Twig brings an explosive energy to the program and we can?t wait to see what he does with a kite.
