HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif., April 16, 2013

HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif., April 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Saturday, April 20th
marks the international release of Lakey Peterson's groundbreaking film Zero
to 100. In conjunction with the film's release, Bella Terra and Hurley are
hosting a Premiere in Huntington Beach with proceeds from the evening
benefiting the Hyundai Cancer Institute at CHOC Children's. Music and a
marketplace will commence onsite at Bella Terra at 5pm, featuring local Orange
County band Hindu Pirates followed by R&B artist Antoine Allain. The official
screening of Zero to 100 will begin promptly at 6:45pm at Century Theatres. A
VIP area at Cheesecake Factory will host special guests including top surfers
from the Association of Surfing Professionals (ASP), sponsors and media.

Zero to 100 chronicles the rapid rise of one of the sports most talented and
progressive female surfers. An ASP World Tour surfer and 2012 US Open
champion, Lakey provides viewers with an intimate, raw and ultimately
inspiring window into her life and the future of women's surfing. Boasting
incredible cinematography, and a masterfully compiled soundtrack that further
amplifies the film's messages, Zero to 100 offers audiences much more than
great waves and surfing.

Interviews with her coach/surf legend Mike Parsons, family members and fellow
surfers including Stephanie Gilmore, Sage Erickson, Kolohe Andino and Bethany
Hamilton help to shed more light on this 18-year-old prodigy. When asked what
she hopes people will take away from the film, Peterson replied, "There are so
many messages in the film and hopefully everyone can relate to it and be
inspired on some level. At the end of the day it is simply a journey about
being the best you can, about not letting other people define who you are, and
not being afraid to take risks to reach your dreams."

Filmmaker Aaron Lieber spent one year on the road with Peterson during her
rookie year, filming the many competition lows and ending with her epic finish
as US Open champion at Huntington Beach last August. "It really could not have
ended any better if I scripted it myself" said Lieber. "I believed in Lakey
and took a risk dedicating a year to this project, but in the end the risk
paid off." When asked about his stance on female surfing Lieber laughed, "If
you've been watching the world tour this year, I think it is clear to most
that the gap between men and women is closing fast and it's an exciting
frontier to document for sure."

Zero to 100 will screen at Bella Terra on Saturday April 20th. The event
starts at 5pm with live music and action onsite, including the opportunity to
meet Lakey Peterson and other ASP surfers. The film will commence at 6:45pm
and is expected to sell out. Tickets are only $10 and can be purchased ahead
of time at TicketBud.com. The film has been accepted at multiple festivals
internationally and in the USA and begins touring and screening publicly in
May. Details on dates can be found on the film's official webpage at

and DVD on April 20th.
