Congratulations to Zane Schweitzer for winning the Italy Surf Expo

Congratulations to Zane Schweitzer for winning the Italy Surf Expo and finishing 2nd place overall in the 2015 European Cup.  Zane finished 6th place in the first stop in Barcelona, Spain, 3rd place in Finland and now the win here in Italy. While he wasn’t able to defend his 2014 Title, Zane put on an inspirational performance through out the entire series.

Leonard Nika was well within reach of the European title with consistent top performances at every stop. However, despite a commanding lead in the sprint course, Leo took a fall at the buoy which led Dylan Frick and Zane to overtake the lead. Although Leo narrowly missed out on pole position, he has had multiple stand out performances all year and deserves his 3rd place overall finish in the European Cup.

Dylan Frick from South Africa finished with another top performance, winning the Sprint race in Italy, taking him to 4th place overall in the European Cup.
