Zane Schweitzer SUPer Groms: Tandem SUP Surfing

This is a reprint of an excellent article posted on April 8, 2016 by SUP Magazine

As a surfer watching this clip, you’re probably thinking back to that golden era when you were green enough to enjoy any ripple and small enough that said ripple felt like Pipeline. It’s the type of clip that strokes the heartstrings of any surfing parent, sibling or child, and influences the rest to give surfing a try. We see here pro waterman Zane Schweitzer taking four groms tandem on the ride of their lives. We’re well acquainted with Zane the competitor, but we haven’t spent a ton of time with Zane the community icon. We caught up with his older brother Matty, talented filmer and certified drone pilot, to ask him about Zane’s community outreach and the story behind the shot. —MM Be sure to click for the full article and a video that bring a smile to your face.

MS: Zane had just arrived back to Maui for just a few days and decided last minute to host an event the following day right in front of our home at Launiupoko beach park. A few Facebook posts later and a few phone calls and we were set! That day we were shocked by the turn out with such short notice. Luckily it’s right in front of our home so we have no shortage of Starboards! We had over 30 local kids come out to surf, eat lunch and learn some valuable tips on ocean safety, beach clean ups and the value of ocean knowledge.

Zane puts his heart and soul into these clinics and it really shows! He is up early organizing, talking to all the parents to ensure their kids are in safe hands and spends all day in the water helping everyone from first timers to kids currently competing. This clip shows Zane deep in his element sharing the love of surfing with a bunch of local Keiki from Maui. On days like this Zane has kids crawling all over him both on the beach and in the water and he loves it! We are currently planning our next “InZane SUPer Groms” event this Saturday again in Lahaina, right in front of our home at Launiupoko beach park!

Japan: Nā Kama Kai Ocean Clinic

Japan Victoria CUP Stand Up World Series 5/14/16:

The day after the SUP Racing it was time for some fun with the kids at the Nā Kama Kai Ocean clinic, sharing our time and knowledge educating them on how to safely practice ocean sports, while passing on the values of respecting our ocean, beaches and each other!

Watch the video here - CLICK and FOLLOW

We had over 50 Japanese kids from the community join and all kind of fun workshops planned for them from Canoe paddle, surfing, Stand up paddle, swimming and basic ocean safety/awareness workshops. The kids all were loving the action and there was nothing but ear to ear smiles and laughs in the air between the kids and all the volunteers on the beach and in the water. Mahalo nui loa Nā Kama Kai, Duane Desoto, Yu San and The Waterman League for giving us the opportunity to share some aloha and good times with the kids here for the 3rd annual Nā Kama Kai Japan event! It was great to see some familiar faces and a handful of kids from the previous years. There's no doubt some great watermen and paddlers will come out of Zushi from these groups!
