September 18, 2012 – Boulder, Co. – ZEAL Optics is proud to call Canadian surfer Pete Devries part of the ZEAL pro team. Born and raised in Tofino, British Columbia, Pete started surfing at the age of seven when his dad first pushed him ontowaves in front of their home. He recently won the Coldwater Classic in his hometown, showing the world what he is capable of. Pete has graced the cover of Surfer and has been featured in Innersection films by Taylor Steele for the past two years.

“ZEAL is stoked to have Pete as part of the family,” said director of marketing Joe Prebich. “He is an unstoppable surfer, not even the frigid waters of BC hold him up. His passion for his sport and lifestyle fit perfectly into the ZEAL brand.”

When not in the surf, Pete enjoys tennis, basketball and backpacking with his friends and family. He is currently working on building a house right across from one of his favorite home breaks, so that his commute to the waves will end up being less than a two-minute walk down the beach.
