Lakey Peterson and Coco Ho, Off Duty in Fiji

In a unique, behind-the-scenes glimpse of life on tour, Hydro Flask ambassadors Lakey Peterson and Coco Ho spend some time together in Fiji, outside of competition mode. The two women teamed up to usher in a new partnership between Hydro Flask and WSL. While the company became the official North American drinkware partner of the CT and the Big Wave Awards in April, they have just released a WSL-branded products that will be available for sale online and at events (available [here]( )).

To celebrate the launch, Hydro Flask created this rare piece on Peterson, in which she reflects on the impact that her ankle injury had on her career and outlook, and on her relationship with Ho, who's also a veteran of the women's elite Tour. Peterson looks back on her road to recovery, and is introspective. Not only does she consider the value of her injury -- trauma and all -- but also the value of fear. "When I can let go of fear, that's the best version of me there is," she says.
