Lakey Peterson's First Time Surfing Teahupoo
With Teahupoo on the schedule for the women's CT next year, she picked the right spot to get some practice in.
I have wanted to go for a while now, but just never found the right time with the busy WSL schedule,” Lakey said about the trip. “With COVID this year, it’s been nice to have a break from all the travel. But once we saw that Tahiti was on the schedule for the women next year, I couldn’t book my flights fast enough.
I really felt like I needed to go surf the wave and figure it out a bit. This has definitely been a weaker attribute to my surfing. It’s such a powerful, scary and beautiful wave that I now have so much respect for it. Hopefully I get to go back soon.
