Zane Schweitzer Wins 2016 Master of the Ocean

SUP athletes come from diverse backgrounds, and it’s not uncommon to see the stars of SUP ripping on surfboards, kiteboards or anything else that floats. Need proof? Look no farther the 2016 Masters of the Ocean event held in Cabarete, Dominican Republic.

The event brings together some of the world’s best athletes in surfing, SUP surfing, kitesurfing and windsurfing. To win the event, one must be an elite and versatile waterman. After winning the prestigious event for the third year in a row, Zane Schweitzer proved he’s worthy of that title. This highlight video gives us a taste of the action from this year’s event. Kitesurfers and windsurfers nail massive flips and surfers and SUP surfers rip in the picturesque overhead peelers. As for Mr. Schweitzer, our hat is off. Winning an event like this once is impressive enough, but doing it three times confirms: this man is truly is a master of the ocean.
