“I’m super excited about welcoming my fellow SCA volunteers to the US Open of Surfing because when it comes to protecting nature, we all need to get on board,” says Lakey.
The US Open of Surfing is one of the biggest outdoor events of the year. And our own SCA spokesperson Lakey Peterson is a top contender in the competition. Not only will SCA be there to cheer on our favorite surfer, but we’re also sponsoring a volunteer beach clean up and fabulous contest!
Fans can enter now to win a “Room and Board” prize pack including a trip for two to California, an autographed Lakey surfboard , surfing lessons from Lakey, and a weekend at the Petersons’ guest house in Santa Barbara. We’ll also be giving away autographed Lakey gear every day of the competition.
Sponsored by Nike, Hurley, and Converse and presented by IMG, the global leader in sports and entertainment, the US Open of Surfing is expected to draw upwards of 750,000 people. SCA volunteers will be on the scene to remove thousands of pounds of debris from the beach and protect the marine environment, with Lakey joining our crews when she’s not competing.
Last year, Lakey won six straight heats on her way to the US Open final before finishing second in the Women’s Division. She is currently ranked among the top 10 female surfers in the world.
As Lakey says, “From the competition to the conservation, it’s going to be an awesome week.”
