After getting dropped by long time sponsor Billabong, South African big wave charger Grant “Twiggy” Baker decided to look on the bright side of life telling Stab magazine, “Well, it ain’t all bad, I have a rock and roll bar and a Playboy playmate as a girlfriend.”
“Well, it ain’t all bad, I have a rock and roll bar and a Playboy playmate as a girlfriend”
That Playboy playmate and now fiancee is fellow South African Kate Lovemore, who describes herself on Instagram as “Playboy playmate, videographer and interior designer.”
She also bodyboards and in between raucous photoshoots wearing not much at all, has backed her global wandering husband-to-be for more than five years.
It has worked, last year Twig was the Big Wave World Tour champion and has recently picked up a new sponsor Vissla. No wonder his glass is half full.
