From schools to businesses, to Rotary Clubs, corporate motivational or workshop events – and SUP events, audiences come away motivated, inspired, entertained and full of the “Zaniac” spirit. Connecting with the local community at home, and wherever he travels, is a top priority for Zane. His InZane SUPer Grom clinics have taught thousands of kids to swim, surf, paddle – and to respect the Ocean. Pocket of Plastic Challenge (Instagram #pocketofplasticchallenge) was the first step in Zane’s outreach to millions.
WHAT’S THE ZANIAC SPIRIT?
Zaniac is a nickname Zane earned throughout his youth, while launching himself into every sport his older brother and friends enjoyed, was “Zaniac.” Zane likes to explain what Zaniac means to him, “The word ‘maniac’ can mean someone who is obsessively enthusiastic. Zaniac may have originated from the way I give 110% to whatever I do. Over time I developed a relentlessness in pursuit of both my dreams and acknowledging gratitude. Each day begins with reflection and mindfulness around goals and purpose. I am blessed.”

Background: Zane Schweitzer is a third generation Professional Waterman who has excelled in every action sport that has crossed his way. His love and respect for the Ocean is vibrant on a daily basis and visible to anyone who has met him in person. Following in his father’s footstep’s as 18X World Champion, Zane has dominated the Windsurf scene with great results and internationally recognized media coverage since childhood. Zane completed the 2015 year of the Stand Up World Tour in 2nd place overall for the World Tour Rankings, and won the 2015 Master of the Ocean competition. His knowledge and connection with the ocean all stem from his love of surfing and family lifestyle. And don’t think for a second that on land he is a fish out of water, he is also a serious motocross racer who will not let off the gas!! Through clinics, community environmental initiatives and “just plain aloha,” Zane shares his passion with generous energy.
From Zane, “Every time I enter the water I am immediately reminded of a greater power’s perfect creation. By immersing yourself in the ocean it’s easy to find purity in yourself; I am so grateful for all the lessons I’ve learned and all the humbling experiences I’ve encountered in the ocean! Mahalo for all the support, good energy and positives messages during all the action and throughout the year, I really appreciate your guys blessings and support!!
