Lakey Peterson Breaks Ankle On A 2ft Wave

Unfortunately this wave has put me out of the ROXY Pro Gold Coast. I am devastated to say the least but hoping to come back stronger and better than ever. Thanks for the support. @kook_of_the_day

There was ankle-break and heart-break for Lakey Peterson during a recent session in Ventura, California, when a regulatory backhand re-entry on a waist-high wave was disrupted by some untimely backwash. Last year’s world no. 6 was enveloped in whitewater as she rode out of the close-out section, suffering a broken ankle that puts her out of the forthcoming Roxy Pro Gold Coast.
