Aloha! My name is Zane Kekoa Schweitzer, Multi-Time World Champion Waterman, published author and environmental advocate with a mission to inspire purpose and stewardship toward our community; for the oceans.
Being the grandson of the inventor of Windsurfing, and the son of 18x World title holder, I’ve always felt inspired to be relentless in the pursuit of my dreams. Born and raised on the island of Maui, I was surrounded by the ocean and volcanic mountains. I grew up in and out of the water, from surfing and windsurfing, to dirt biking and hiking. With the influence of my family and community I found purpose through innovating the sports I’m most passionate about and inspiring the world of ocean sports and enthusiasts.
From winning 15 World Championship events including ISA World Championships, APP World Tour, The Ultimate Waterman, IFCA Windsurfing Tour and Waterman League, to pioneering the recent evolution of sports like SUP and Hydrofoiling, I’m always looking to push the limits of what’s possible within my sports and personal performance. I’ve read that, “success is where preparation meets opportunity,” and this drives me to make daily choices that bring me one step closer to my dreams each day. These choices may include small or large decisions around diet and nutrition, or balance between physical and mental training.
NOW® has been essential for me to keep balance between my training and recovery! When I travel or when I’m home my favorite way to fuel up is with my Power Smoothie, filled with NOW ingredients!
