During these tough times the world's best continue to show their class, as well as determination to stay at their top form both physically and mentally. Some of the North America region's elite joined fellow Championship Tour (CT) competitors from around the world in the World Surf League's (WSL) #StayLocal Campaign where WSL matched donations from the surfers to their local business(es) of choice.
Along with being charitable in a time when its needed most, these surfers have opened up their doors to the world in hopes of inspiring and lifting spirits.
Catching Up with Lakey Peterson
Peterson has self-quarantined with her husband, Tom, down at Bells Beach, Australia, and is getting back to basics. This means locking into her nutrition program, staying fit in the gym and practicing the all-important social distancing. The Santa Barbara, California, local took both of her homes into consideration for the #StayLocal Campaign by donating to Swell Cafe in Bells Beach as well as the Handlebar Cafe and A-Frame Surf Shop near her hometown.
Big reveals from Lakey's new vlog include her dedication avocados, her passion for Cholula hot sauce (running out apparently "scares me the most"), and who knew she digs the new Justin Bieber album (her husband not so much).
Brisa Hennessy Gives Back and Shows You Her Quarantine Dreamland
Hennessy also represents two homes currently - living on the remote Namotu Island in Fiji part-time while also representing her Costa Rican heritage. The provisionally qualified Olympian got on board with the #StayLocal Campaign and showed her generosity by donating to the Malololailai Trader Market in Fiji as well as the Pollo Surf School in her country of Costa Rica.
The 20-year-old also welcomes you to her quarantine dreamland on Namuto where she lives with her parents and the island's natives. Check out the latest "Lawn Patrol" with Hennessy.
