SUNSET BEACH, Oahu, Hawaii - (Wednesday, October 30, 2019) – South Africa’s David Van Zyl conquered an all-star Final today at the Vans Pro presented by HIC, a World Surf League (WSL) Men’s Qualifying Series (QS) 3,000 event, after battling proper surf at Sunset Beach to come out on top of the 112-man field. Only the second non-Hawaii surfer to win the Vans Pro, Van Zyl is the first international athlete to take the title after besting former event winner and Sunset powerhouse Ezekiel Lau (HAW), big wave connoisseur Jack Robinson (AUS) and North Shore standout Barron Mamiya (HAW), who earned runner-up, third and fourth place respectively.

His biggest professional win to date, Van Zyl, 26, had an underdog victory after climbing out of a combo situation in the Final and pulling ahead of heat frontrunner Lau. With priority, the South African scored a 6.67 (out of a possible 10) for an aggressive, well-timed turn in the critical part of the section, then picked up another wave under priority toward the end of the heat. He went vertical on two turns to score an 8.00 and moved into first place to shake up the standings.
