Lakey Peterson On "Shark Tank" With SurfSET Fitness

Written by:

Californian World Tour surfer Lakey Peterson, currently #7 in the ASP’s Women’s World Championship Tour rankings, was practically raised in the water. Her mother, a former Olympic swimmer, competed in a Triathlon while eight months pregnant with her. Lakey has taken to the ocean ever since, which is shown through her effortless attack on surfing. With one of the strongest sections of Nike’s 6.0 “Leave A Message” movie, Lakey reveals the progression of women’s surfing with her powerful carves and innovative aerial maneuvers, along with some of the top women surfers in the world. On Friday, the talented 17-year-old was also featured on an episode of ABC’s “Shark Tank” reality television show.
