From Waterman League:

It has been an amazing 3 days here in Tahiti with pumping surf, beautiful weather, and surrounded by the magical scenery that makes you feel like you are in a dream world, with today’s action proving to be the perfect way to end the 2015 #SapinusPro.

Today dawned overcast, but with solid surf in the 6ft++ region, as Round 3 kicked off early, as the sun came out to provide a picture perfect scenario for the final day of competition.

From the outset, Zane Schweitzer (Starboard) was a man on a mission, driving powerful carves in the pocket and finding more barrels than anyone, clearly here to make a statement in Tahiti at stop number 2 on the 2015 Stand Up World Tour.

Zane won all his heats on his way to the final, clearly positioning himself as the man to beat, and building off the flashes of brilliance he showed back at Sunset in February. A victory has been long overdue for this young talent from Maui, as he hasn’t had a win since 2011 (the Hawaii Island Finals), except for a win at the Abu Dhabi All Stars exhibition event back in 2013.

After his win here in Tahiti, Zane now moves into 2nd place overall in the World Rankings with a 9th at Sunset and now a win here in Tahiti. He is looking stronger, fitter and more focused than ever, so watch out for this impressive talent as we progress through the 2015 season, sitting right on the heels of the new ratings leader.

Make sure to watch the highlights, check out the full results, and standby for more lifestyle segments coming to you over the coming week from the beautiful islands of Tahiti at www.watermanleague.com
