With his dramatic win at the Reef Hawaiian Pro at Haleiwa, in front of legions of friends and family, Sebastian “Seabass” Zietz officially qualified for the 2013 ASP World Tour.

In this episode of Oakley Dispatch, Seabass revisits the path to qualification. The challenges and successes; the injuries and heat wins. It was a year spent traveling the globe for contests and filming, and over the course of it all, he worked his way up the ratings.

Coming into Hawaii, a couple decent results or one big result would make all the difference. Feeling healthy and confident in his boards, Seabass put his full array of maneuvers, the power and the flair, on display at Haleiwa and shocked the surfing world. Watch for Seabass – the surf talent and dance moves – among the Top 34 in the world in 2013.
