Zeke staking his claim with second QS win at HIC Pro


Ezekiel Lau won his second straight Qualifying Series contest with a win at the HIC Pro on Oahu. It’s Lau’s second career victory at this event and it moved him into the top 10 on the QS leaderboard. The Triple Crown of Surfing begins Nov. 12 with the Hawaiian Pro in Haleiwa.

Ezekiel Lau is setting quite a precedent when it comes to late-season drama. From last season’s qualification bid that required some third-party results from Kanoa Igarashi at Pipeline, to this year’s jump from 105th place all the way up to ninth in just two Qualifying Series contests, Lau has put himself in position to surf a sophomore season on the Championship Tour.
