South African Grant "Twiggy" Baker wins Mavericks surf competition

Mavericks.

It's a legendary name in big wave surfing.

Every year some of the best surfers in the world gather near Half Moon Bay in Northern California to test their skill and their nerve – against some of the biggest waves in the world.

With the best rides on waves over 25 feet tall, and two miles from shore, Mavericks is definitely not for the faint of heart.
