Svein Rasmussen, Founder and Chief of Starboard:
Zane Kekoa Schweitzer lives an absolutely inspiring life story. That story is just starting to unravel through this book, which is sort of the first chapter. He can help create a better world through his curiosity, willingness to learn and ability to energetically share very important lessons. Zane is taking the lead in so many aspects and to work with him on anything is a lot of fun.
Dave Kalama, Legendary Waterman:
Zane has a natural inclination to share his knowledge. He comes from a great family that has been instrumental in inspiring him to be the really good person he is. That is one of the key defining characteristics he has to his core. Zane possesses a lot of traditional waterman skills. The face and definition of the classic way of being a waterman is changing and Zane is the epitome of that evolution.
Connor Baxter, Multi World Champion Waterman, Fastest Paddler on Earth:
Zane Kekoa Schweitzer has the biggest heart of anyone I know and can make anyone feel the “aloha spirit” of Hawai‘i no matter where in the world he is. He is also one of the most talented watermen I have ever known.
Cyrill Gutsch, Founder of Parley for the Oceans:
Zane is an innocent influencer, an energy infusion for our movement, an ocean warrior. He doesn’t know the ideas of fear and doubt. His path is an inspiration for anyone wanting to dedicate his life to purpose.
Michael Stewart, Founder of Sustainable Surf:
There is no doubt in my mind that Zane Schweitzer was born to be a world class Waterman. But more importantly, he’s a natural born storyteller with something worth sharing – let’s call it an “Attitude of Gratitude.” That attitude along with his many globetrotting competitive successes as a professional ocean athlete, his natural curiosity and respect about the world around him are what really makes him a “world champion” worth “talking story” with. So, go ahead. Spend some time hanging out with Zane in his first book and you’ll feel the way I always do after a conversation with him: inspired, refreshed, and stoked about the path ahead.
