Despite the events of the past couple months, Sebastian “Seabass” Zietz is still the same outgoing, three-thumbed, dance-machine from Kauai that the surf community knows and loves – he’s just added a few new facts to his Wikipedia page: Triple Crown champion and a member of the ASP World Tour. One was the springboard unto the other.
The world’s best male and female surfers have arrived on Australia’s Gold Coast for the commencement of the 2013 ASP World Championship Tour (WCT) with the Quiksilver and Roxy Pro Gold Coast presented by Land Rover scheduled to begin on Saturday.
Joel Parkinson (AUS), 31, reigning ASP World Champion and former Quiksilver Pro Gold Coast event champion, looked relaxed as he joked with media and the other surfers. Parkinson admitted that he’s feeling less pressure and looking forward to using a relaxed approach to the 2013 ASP World Championship Tour season with hopes of replicating last year’s success.
Action-packed weekend likely for Quiksilver & Roxy Pros
Surf News, 27 February, 2013 The Quiksilver and Roxy Pro’s presented by Land Rover are likely to commence this weekend with a promising swell set to arrive on cue for the opening 2013 events of the ASP Men’s and Women’s World Championship Tours. Contest Director Jake Paterson (Aus) is anticipating an action packed weekend as the world’s best surfers commence their 2013 campaigns in the high performance waves on the southern end of Australia’s Gold Coast. “We have a great week of swell coming. It’s just a bit unfortunate at the moment that we have a big hole out the back of Snapper Rocks but fortunately for us, we have a great bank down at Rainbow Bay, so it looks like we are going to get away pretty early,” said Paterson.

While the true world thunders by, Clark Little is happy documenting the moment when waves extinguish. Have you seen the way that sand scoops up through the turquoise face of a shorebreak? Or, the way the sun dances on the wall just before detonation? Scary and pretty, all at once! It’s kinda captivating. That’s Clark’s zone. He’s been capturing condensed slices of violence and beauty in shorebreaks since 2005. Some mainstream recognition (National Geographic, thanks) and a successful gallery and website have since become his full-time game. Ain’t that something special? When Stab called to discuss such things, Clark was “Chewing on some beef jerky, editing some pictures, and just living the life, y’know?” STAB MAG HERE
