Sebastian Zietz (HAW) is playing the game, and he’s playing it quite well. Julian Wilson and Sebastian Zietz have been matched up in the past, and once again, take each other on at the Drug Aware Margaret River Pro.
Within the first minute of their heat, fireworks lit up the scene. Seabass snuck in a right hander, catching Julian off guard. Seconds later, Julian answered back with an 8.6. Both surfers are off to a strong start, although Zietz barrel was considered incomplete, they both started the heat surfing aggressively, guns blazing.
With 30 minutes to go in the final heat, Seabass took off on a clean right, grabbed rail and power hooked it back into the wash.
These boys really impressed the judges by showcasing their talent and surfing their hearts out. It wasn’t until the last 5 minutes that Seabastian Zietz took the lead and ultimately the win in this nail biting final. For the first time ever, Seabass took out his first championship tour win, congrats!
