Twig // A Calculated Madness // 12:49

posted by / Video / December 18, 2013

Last summer, Derek Dunfee boarded a plane to South Africa. 40 hours later, when he touched down in Cape Town, Derek learned that his place to stay had fallen through. So he called the only other Zaffa he knew, Grant “Twiggy” Baker. Twiggy immediately set him up and the trip morphed into one of the best of Derek’s life. He detailed the adventure in a story called African Fortnight, which you can read in SURFING Magazine’s Big Wave Issue.

Twig: A Calculated Madness is Derek’s ode to the host. It shows Twiggy chasing waves around his homeland. The short film culminates with the biggest day of the year at Dungeons, for a session in which Twig rules — in a way as mad as it is methodical.

    How did that word pretentious even come into this video? Beary, wannabees will always be wannabees, maybe blame your Mother, but personally I would blame oneself. Can you send us a photo of you riding a 25+ foot wave? Whats a bet you cannot, Only then can you pretend to be pretentious.
