Last Saturday saw the crowning of Twiggy Baker as the 10th winner of the annual Red Bull Big Wave Africa competition held near Hout Bay in Cape Town.

From the Competition Website, "South Africa’s Baker, who hails from Durban, dominated the half hour final with two bomb waves, which he rode resolutely, scoring 8.2 and 9. Like previous winner John Whittle, also of Durban, Baker modestly attributed his victory to luck, saying he was fortunate the winning waves came his way, before he dedicated the win to his late father, who passed away 20 years ago to the day last weekend."

Congrats Twiggy Baker from all of us at AdventureEscapades.co.za - what an awesome achievement!!
