Surfer of the Week - 7/26/2021

ZAL COSTA

Age: 12
Hometown: Kona, Hawaii
School: Acellus Academy; GPA: 3.6; Favorite subject: Art & Math
Sponsors: Hurley, GoPro, Nixon, Range Essential, Salt & Stone, Kona Boys, Team BK, North Shore Surf Shop, PIKAI Hawaii
Equipment: Timmy Patterson 5'0" round tail; Tokoro 5'0" squash tail
Claim to Fame: From the moment Zal showed up at the very first event to kick off the 20/21 Southwest Conference Open Season at Ventura Harbor in April, his potential was obvious. You could see that competitive fire and determination were in his eyes. Even though the 12-year-old from the Big Island of Hawaii only advanced to the quarterfinals in that first contest, it was clear it wouldn’t take him long to adjust to the west coast wave conditions and start making finals. With contests still on hold in Hawaii because of the pandemic, the Costa family were dedicated to get both Zal and his younger brother Kona as much experience as possible which required multiple trips across the Pacific. And before long, Zal’s skill level soared and he was not only making finals, he was winning them. He was also stepping up into advanced age brackets and making finals in those. The following weekend after the Ventura Open, Zal got his first taste of victory, claiming the win in the Menehuene division of the Southwest Explorer event 2 in Huntington Beach. His confidence kicked in after that first win and he went on an incredible streak racking up six victories and multiple finals placings. He stormed up the ranks, dropping huge scores in every contest which included a perfect 10 at the SW Explorer doubleheader season finale. “Of all the contests, the last Explorers were my favorite,” Zal said. “I got a perfect 10 for a glassy barrel and was able to take back-to-back wins which earned me my first season championship.” Along with securing the season title in the Explorer Menehuenes, Zal finished in the top five of Explorer Boys and Open Mini Groms. We will see him back in August, competing at the West Coast Regionals and then making his first trip to the NSSA National Championships. He has a huge goal - “To win the NSSA Nationals!” Zal has soaked up all the victories, adapted to the challenges, dealt with the losses but most importantly he has been learning so much as he goes. “Coming out to California, I have had the opportunity to compete at new spots and learn new things,” he said. “That has made me work hard to be good in all conditions.” Now that Zal has received a huge taste of west coast competition, made the most of his experiences and has achieved success, we are excited to see what the Kona boy brings to the National stage! WHAT DID YOU LIKE BEST ABOUT COMPETING IN THE CALIFORNIA EVENTS? Surfing new types of waves and meeting new friends. AGE YOU STARTED SURFING: My dad started pushing me into waves when I was 3. I would stand up and surf right to my mom who was swimming on the inside. SURF CREW: My little brother Kona. LOCAL SPOT: Banyans. WHAT IS THE BEST THING ABOUT LIVING ON THE BIG ISLAND? It is a very natural and powerful place. I like living the simple life in the country. LOCAL HEROES: Shane Dorian for mastering Kona conditions and making the World Tour. Then he gave back to the sport creating the Keiki Classic for all the Big Island groms. Also Sam Fenwick who we surf with every day. He is the best surfer in Kona. FAVORITE PRO SURFERS: Gabriel Medina. I am half Brazilian and Gabriel is the best in the world. He is focused, successful and a great performer. Also, John John Florence, Filipe Toledo and Morgan Ciblic. IF YOU COULD SURF LIKE ANYONE IN THE WORLD, WHO WOULD IT BE? Andy Irons because he has the most silky, smooth style. FANTASY SUPERPOWER: Teleport and move through time to find the best breaks and empty lineups. SOMETHING PEOPLE DO NOT KNOW ABOUT YOU: My mom was born and raised on Oahu and my dad is from Brazil. They were the first to import acai from Brazil to Hawaii and started the first acai bowl shop in Hawaii almost 20 years ago! DREAM WAVE: Desert Point, Bali. BARRELS OR AIRS? Barrels all day. WHO HAS PUSHED YOUR SURFING THE MOST? My brother Kona because we are close in age and he is really good. He is such a charger and we always push and support each other to be better and go big. GOALS THIS YEAR: To win the NSSA National Championships and be invited to the USA Champs. THINGS YOU ARE WORKING ON? My air game and my turns. THANK YOUS: To all of my family, friends, sponsors and organizers that help put on all the events.
