Zeke Lau Wins 2013 Vans World Cup of Surfing
Hawaii's own Ezekiel Lau, 20, posted the largest victory of his young career today by winning the prestigious 39th annual VANS World Cup of Surfing at Sunset Beach - the second stop of the Vans Triple Crown of Surfing hydrated by vitaminwater®. Lau's win earned him $40,000 and sees him close the year at 35th position on the ASP world rankings. While that doesn't qualify him for next year's elite World Championship Tour, it does guarantee him an excellent seed. He also holds a shared lead on the coveted Vans Triple Crown series rankings with Michel Bourez (Tahiti) heading into the third and final event of the series - the Billabong Pipe Masters, where he is a local wildard entry.
