TWIG – JAWS 11th of NOV


The 11th of November was opening day at Jaws this season and it hasn’t disappointed. I’ve seen Twig catch some big waves before, but this was a monster!  Just off the plane from surfing in Europe, Twig grabbed his fresh batch of Webster Guns and this was his first surf on the new 10’0 x 21 3/4 x 4, stoked it worked. View the video footage here. Check out the TWIG board model here.

What can you say about this footage? The level of Big Wave Riding in this clip is out of this World! It’s amazing what guys are paddling into at the moment and how much the wave size has increased. Enjoy..


 

High Volume Guns

High Volume Guns

The boards I’m currently working on with Twig are definitely alot more high volume than your average gun. Just like the shortened length and wider noses in shortboard design, Twig has been working on the same principle with his gun designs for the last few years.

The boards are thicker and wider throughout, allowing him to ride shorter boards than previous years for the wave size he is paddling into. Twig jokes about being slagged for riding funboards in larger waves, but with what’s currently going down at Jaws, it seems his theory’s are now being pounced upon by all big wave chasers.

Where Jaws once seemed to be a tow-in wave, it is quickly becoming the perfect wave to get barrelled of your nut on your 10’6. The same principles apply to all large swells world wide, enjoy your Winter.
