Early years[edit]

At age 7, Coco Ho began following in the footsteps of her surfer family. Coco’s father, Michael Ho, was a professional surfer (World Cup and 1982 Pipe Masters) as well as her uncle, Derek Ho (1993 World Champion). Her brother, Mason Ho (1st Place Cold Water Classic ASP Pro Jr. 2008), played a huge role in Coco’s early surfing influence by her wanting to surf as well as him.[1] With her parents allowing her to discover the joy of surfing and Mason there to impress, Coco was set for a life in the water. Coco earned her first sponsorship at 8-years-old and at age 17, she qualified for the ASP Women’s World Championship Tour. In 2009, Coco won the Rookie of the Year award. Raised on Oahu’s North Shore, Coco spent most of her time surfing the "Seven Mile Miracle”.
