Zero to 100: The Lakey Peterson Story

I chose to watch the documentary Zero to 100 for a second time on Netflix. This time around, I paid closer attention to the documentary style of the film. This is a documentary about a female surfer named Lakey Peterson. It takes us around the world with some incredible cinematography. Lakey started surfing at the age of 11, which is late in the game for competitive female surfers. At age 12 Lakey won multiple NSSA titles and at age 14 she won the NSSA Open Women’s Title by performing the first-ever female aerial maneuver in competition. It tells a true and inspiring story of a young woman with ambition to succeed. The documentary features B-roll from her parents, coaches, teachers and friends. Along with surfing, the film also shows Lakey traveling, working out, doing community service and teaching kids to surf. There’s footage of some of the best surf spots in the world and we get insight of Lakey from riding the waves to her everyday life.
