Congrats to Ezekiel Lau who won the $85,000 HIC Pro Presented by Vans, held at Sunset Beach. Lau, who attends Kamehameha School, posted a convincing win over 15-year-old Maui schoolboy Ian Gentil; Kauai’s Kamalei Alexander, 33; and defending HIC Pro champion Billy Kemper (Maui, 21) respectively. Lau is focused on his opportunity to compete in the prestigious Vans Triple Crown of Surfing that begins next week. This is Lau’s second ASP victory this year, having taken out the equally rated 4-star Copa Quiksilver El Salvador event back in July. “This is my first year doing a lot of the WQS events,” said Lau. “I got a lot of opportunities to travel more and I had a good summer. I did this event last year and it was totally different. I was struggling through the whole event. I just wanted to come over this year and improve on last year. I did that and I’m happy with a win. I’ve been looking forward to this my whole life pretty much, watching everyone get out there and get in the Vans Triple Crown, so just to get in it, I feel honored.”

Every year we go through the same routine. Anxiously anticipating the season’s end to get back into a routine lifestyle, then dreading the colder days of winter and excited for the next season to begin. We find ourselves at the beginning of our off-season now, figuring out ways to productively pass the time.
I have caught a cable park fever which has accounted for my wake productivity. Along with that, Rusty Malinoski and myself are the ringers on an 0-8 softball team ready to make a legendary playoff run, come November.
Harley Clifford has been shipped back to Australia to keep flipping and spinning with his never ending summer; the kid has an addiction.
As for James Balzer, if you follow him on Instagram (“snappybalz”) you can see Balzer-style documentation of "the kid" growing up. Good work Balzer, you are the king of baby making.
Jeff McKee has been documenting other team happenings on alliancewake.com, including an interview with our new favorite NorCal ripper, Trever Maur. Also keep your eyes peeled for LipSmack, a Slingshot team video starring McKee himself.
Until next time my BG wake enthusiasts,

Jamie O’Brien tried to use his brand of humor in an effort to bring awareness to fibropapilloma, a herpes-type infection, that is afflicting the endangered sea turtle population. We believe that he could have achieved his goal in a much better manner. We treat our athletes like family so like a family we have addressed this situation internally and directly with Jamie.
We do not condone this activity and have taken the proper internal steps to inform Jamie of the seriousness of this activity. We do not believe this specific photo accurately depicts Jamie’s relationship with the ocean and its’ inhabitants and know that it does not reflect Body Glove's relationship with the ocean.
We thank the concerned public for their messages, input and for bringing this photo to light and hope that it can be used as a learning experience for all people who enter the ocean with the amazing creatures in it.
