Currently ranked No. 6 in the world, Lakey Peterson has been “strong, smart, and bold” from the start. Dubbed “Lakey Surf Legend” at age five, Lakey was surfing competitively by age eleven. The following year Lakey won her first of several titles from the National Scholastic Surfing Association (NSSA), and at age fourteen she won the NSSA Open Women’s Title by performing the first-ever female aerial maneuver in competition. She defended her title in 2010, and was named the 2010-11 ASP North American Regional Champion for the women’s and junior women’s division. At sixteen, Lakey had the chance to compete as a wild card entry in the 2011 U.S. Open of Surfing – a Women’s World Tour event, and the biggest surf event in the world – where she placed runner-up. Lakey completed her 2011 season by winning every event in the North American Junior Pro series. Now in her “Rookie Year” as part of the official ASP Women’s World Tour, she has yet again proven herself a force to be reckoned with, winning the 2012 U.S. Open of Surfing.

Lakey Peterson is available for interviews prior to the Celebration Luncheon. Please contact Shannon Kelly to schedule.
