Lakey’s Olympic Journey

When Lakey was just five years old, her family set out on a year-long, around-the-world adventure. It was during this trip that Peterson learned to surf. Their littlest member instantly earned the nickname "Lakey Legend” with locals far and wide. And by the time she was 16, Lakey was making waves on the professional surfing circuit.

Surfing is such a huge part of my life and far more than just a professional career. It has opened doors to experiences and relationships that continue to shape and define who I am.

With her sights on the Olympic Games, there’s no doubt that the sky’s the limit for what she can do. But training isn’t as simple as other sports. She can’t control the waves. She just has to accept the swell and work around it. There are ups and downs, but Lakey still averages four hours a day in the water.
