Sebastian Ziets won the 2012 Triple Crown of Surfing title. "Seabass" won the Reef Hawaiian Pro, finished third in the Vans World Cup of Surfing and progressed through to Round 3 at the Billabong Pipe Masters to claim the Triple Crown of Surfing 2012 title.
"Seabass", from Kauai, started surfing at 6 years old. No ID, passport or birth certificate meant he couldn't travel for a long time. Ziets trained with Andy and Bruce Irons, Roy Powers and Dustin Barca to build a solid career. He turned pro at 16 and always saw Pipeline as a scary wave. 2012 confirmed his status of surf star.
