Zane has been in New Zealand for a month-long training program getting geared up for the 2015 stand up paddling surf and race season, where he was able to fit in a few competitions and races into his schedule with fellow FCS teammate Sean Poynter and Starboard teammate Connor Baxter.
While in New Zealand training, Zane also was revealed with the surprise of landing the cover of Tahiti’s Standup Paddle Magazine along with a 5-page spread in the UK’s Paddler Magazine highlighting his work for StandUp for the Cure as their Global Ambassador. Zane is thrilled on his win and his surprise cover and is looking forward to more outstanding achievements, and knows this year is going to be BIG!
