About

Coco Ho is Hawaiian surfing royalty. She’s the daughter of pro surfing pioneer Michael Ho, the godfather of the North Shore surf scene on Oahu. During his illustrious 25-year career Michael won two Triple Crowns, appeared in five Pipe Masters finals (winning in 1982), eight Duke finals (winning in 1978 and ‘81) and finished No. 3 in the world. Her uncle Derek was the 1993 World Champion and a four-time Triple Crown winner. Yet it was Coco’s older brother Mason who coaxed her into the lineup when she was nine; he wanted a surf partner. It didn’t take much convincing, and she was soon joining him at amateur events all over the state. Competing or not, Coco is always found with a huge smile on her face. She’s a relentless seeker of fun who’s often described as a blonde bundle of joy, and her surfing matches her spirit. It’s fast paced, bright and bold. After a solid amateur career she joined the Championship Tour in 2009, won the Rip Curl Search event in Portugal, and nabbed the rookie of the year honor for finishing No. 4 in the world. While this is her tenth season on Tour, and her surfing has evolved dramatically, she’s yet to top that first go around, which is a testament to how competitive the women’s field is getting. Over the past eight years she’s appeared in three more finals, but fell short of victory in each. She’s had a tough time surviving the CT cut over the last four years, but has dominated Qualifying Series events to keep her spot on Tour intact. In 2017 alone she won three QS events in Portugal, Spain and Japan, giving her nine over the course of her career. Despite her big smile and her warm Aloha spirit, Coco is a scrapper. Like her father, she’ll be battling for years to come.
