Zane Schweitzer | Standup For the Cure’s Top Ambassador
For SUP surfing pro and all-around waterman Zane Schweitzer, surfing is in his blood. The man has won the multi-discipline Master of the Ocean competition three years in a row and continues to push the limits of progressive SUP surfing. However, Zane is about much more than just surfing, he is also spends much of his time striving to make a difference and give back.
After a close family friend was diagnosed with breast cancer a few years back, Zane’s mom helped create Standup for the Cure (SUFTC)–a major SUP event that raises money and awareness for breast cancer. Since the inaugural SUFTC four years ago, Zane has not only been an ambassador but has attended every event. In this video, the elite waterman from Maui shares how he got into surfing, as well as the importance of giving back to worthy causes such as SUFTC. Paired with radical footage of Zane SUP surfing massive waves, it gives us a unique look into a different side of one standup paddling’s most talented athletes.
