Sebastian Ziets: Triple Crown smile

Sebastian Ziets has conquered the Triple Crown of Surfing 2012. The Hawaiian surfer secured the title after reaching Round 3 of the Billabong Pipe Masters in Memory of Andy Irons.

The wave rider known as "Seabass" won the Reef Hawaiian Pro, finished third in the Vans World Cup of Surfing and progressed through to Round 3 at the Billabong Pipe Masters to claim the Triple Crown of Surfing 2012.

"I'm super stoked," Zietz said. "I'm just doing it for everyone in Kauai and everyone in Hawaii. Thanks everyone who comes down and watches us, you're the reason we have a job. Thanks to Andy (Irons), you're the one giving me the power".

"I'm so stoked. I don't know what to say. It's just amazing. I'd like to thank everyone who was a part of it. So many people have helped me throughout my life. The list goes on and on, you guys know who you are."

Sebastian Ziets started surfing in the island of Kauai when he was only 6 years old, in the heart of a hippie surfing family. No ID, passport or birth certificate meant he couldn't travel for a long time.

Ziets trained with Andy and Bruce Irons, Roy Powers and Dustin Barca to build a solid career. He turned pro at 16 and always saw Pipeline as a scary wave. The year 2012 confirmed his status of surf star.

"Seabass" has conquered the Vans Triple Crown of Surfing 2012. That means $100,000, a 30,000 Harley Davidson motorcycle and a $10,000 custom Nixon watch.

The 24-year-old surfer has already qualified for the 2013 ASP World Championship Tour.

Whether you think of a kite as a wing or a sail, you want it to be lightweight, resistant, waterproof, but also stiff and flexible at the same time, so that they could respond to all flight requests.
