Sebastian Zietz Wins The Vans Triple Of Surfing
Kauai's three thumbed wonder is on fire!
After a win at the Reef Hawaiian Pro at Haleiwa, a final appearance at the Vans World Cup of Surfing, and today's stellar performance in the Pipe Masters (who does that to John John at Pipeline?), Kauai's Sebastian three-thumbed wonder "Seabass" Zietz has won the 2012 Vans Triple Crown of Surfing. A stylish and hard-charging regularfoot, Seabass has also qualified for the 2013 World Championship Tour. To say he's had a dream run on the North Shore this year would be the understatement of the year—dude is on fire! Even better, he's still going in the Pipe Masters and could play a major role in the World Title battle between Joel Parkinson and Kelly Slater.
Before dedicating his win to Andy Irons, Seabass was carried down the beach from the Oakley house at Off The Wall to the stage at Pipeline on top of a big wave gun, in the coolest "chair" ever. Well done Bass!
