A Day in the Life of Zeke Lau
Surfline did an awesome write up of team rider Zeke Lau a few days ago:

It’s Tuesday morning. Light winds and a modest NW swell are keeping the North Shore full of fun, rippable springtime surf. A lifted, black 2014 Toyota Tundra pulls up to Haleiwa’s Ali’i Beach Park. The driver sneaks a peek at the playful lineup and quickly parks.

“Sorry I’m late, I forgot my lucky trunks and had to turn back,” Ezekiel Lau says. His 6’1″, 200-pound frame is commanding. The torn sleeves on his camouflage Volcom Hawaii T-shirt barely move as the morning’s first puff of tradewinds breeze through. His hair is cut to a tight fade; his post-pubescent beard is overgrown and unkempt. At 20 years old, Lau’s early days as a skinny, shaved-head NSSA champ are long gone. He’s a grown man now. And his stature more resembles a starting NBA pointguard than a wiry professional surfer.

Ezekiel Lau is an athlete in every sense of the word. His parents were both NCAA standouts. Zeke competed in soccer, baseball, basketball and track growing up. But surfing always seemed to be the young Hawaiian’s calling. These days, he trains regularly, surfs daily, all while eyeing his ultimate goal – the WCT.

“I just want compete at the highest level of our sport and surf against the best guys at the best waves,” says Zeke simply.

Last December, Lau won the Vans World Cup at Sunset Beach to cap off his first full-fledged year on the WQS. (Unlike most young pros, Zeke stayed in high school and graduated as a senior from the prestigious Kamehameha School.) The $40,000 winner’s check bought the shiny truck sitting in the parking lot, while the Prime points boosted him into the top-tier of the qualification rankings.

But like a historic trail of talented Hawaiians before him, heading off island to grovel in onshore beachbreaks doesn’t always go well. And after returning from a less-than-stellar run at the pair of season-opening six-stars in Australia, Lau is enjoying time at home with his girlfriend Jenna and his tight-knit family. But the goal is always the same.

He turns his back on the reeling, overhead Haleiwa rights. “Let’s go to a little lefthander with a ramp around the corner,” he says.

Clearly, he already knows how to surf perfect waves. But he also knows he’ll only end up on the Dream Tour by kicking his tail above-the-lip at waves like the chest-high slop he’s about to surf.”

Dustin Kimura TUF Nations Finale | April 11, 2014
Last day of hard training in the books for Dustin Kimura as he heads to face George Roop at UFC TUF Nations Finale in Quebec City on April 16th.From Sherdog:
“A bantamweight clash between George Roop and Dustin Kimura is now official for UFC Fight Night 41.

The April 16 event takes place at the Pepsi Coliseum in Quebec City and is headlined by a pivotal middleweight confrontation pitting Tim Kennedy against Michael Bisping. The evening’s main draw airs live on Fox Sports 1 and will also see onetime Strikeforce champion Sarah Kaufman face Shayna Baszler in a women’s bantamweight duel.

Roop, 32, had a two-fight winning streak snapped in his most recent outing this past November, when he was knocked out by Francisco Rivera at UFC Fight Night 31. Prior to that setback, Roop posted consecutive victories to kick off 2013, outpointing Reuben Duran before stopping ex-WEC champion Brian Bowles last May at UFC 160.

Kimura, 24, suffered the lone setback of his career in his sophomore UFC appearance after debuting in the Octagon with a third-round submission of Chico Camus one year ago. “The Diamond” rebounded from his September defeat to Mitch Gagnon last month, scoring a first-round submission over Jon delos Reyes at UFC Fight Night 34 in Singapore.”
