Cape Town - South Africa's Grant Baker has conquered the iconic Mavericks Invitational 2013/2014, at Half Moon Bay in California.

The South African big wave surfer pulled a 10-point ride to steal the final from the hands of Ryan Augenstein, Tyler Fox, Greg Long and Anthony Tashnick.

"I feel amazing. There's no feeling like it. Two of my favourite surfers were in the final: Shane Dorian and Greg Long and to beat those guys in a final is an amazing feeling. To win Mavericks... I did it 2006 and eight year later I'm older, slower, but I still have a beat in me," said Baker.

Results of the Mavericks Invitational 2013/2014:

Grant Baker, 29.33
Ryan Augenstein, 16.66
Tyler Fox, 12.66
Greg Long, 12.00
Anthony Tashnick, 0.00
