Hawaiian upstart Zeke Lau's breakout victory at the Vans World Cup of Surfing had all of Hawaii celebrating as he asserted his place on the world's stage. As Volcom cornerman Kai Garcia said, "When you win, we all win." Lau is tied for first with Michel Bourez in the Triple Crown race heading into next week's finale, the Billabong Pipe Masters.
