We consider the kinematics of the locally BPS super-Wilson loop in N=4 super-Yang-Mills with scalar coupling from a twistorial point of view. We find that the kinematics can be described either as supersymmetrized pure spinors or as a point in the product of two super-Grassmannian manifolds G2|2(4|4)×G2|2(4|4). In this description of the kinematics the scalar-scalar correlation function appearing in the one-loop evaluation of the super-Wilson loop can be neatly written as a sum of four superdeterminants.
