SUNSET BEACH, Oahu, Hawaii - (Wednesday, October 30, 2019) – The Vans Pro presented by HIC, a World Surf League (WSL) Qualifying Series (QS) 3,000 event, saw more XL surf churn through the football field-sized stadium of Sunset Beach with wave face heights continuing to push fifteen-feet. Tuesday’s conditions were considered a completely different sport than what the rest of the QS sees over the year, given the amount of physical exertion that the wave demands from athletes. Perseverance was key and most of the bright moments went hand in hand with hold downs, wipeouts and broken boards.

Athletes struggled to stay alive in the competition and earn qualification, points and prestige at one of the greatest stages in surfing as the Vans Triple Crown of Surfing season ignites. Championship Tour (CT) surfer and 2012 Vans Triple Crown Champion Sebastian Zietz (HAW) came out firing in Round 3 with a 9.0 (out of a possible 10) after drawing a high line into the barrel and grabbing rail for a stylish kickout. With impeccable positioning, Zietz joined the select few who earned near-perfect scores today.
