Lauren "Lo" Ridgemount is one of the six main characters of Stoked. She's the middle child and only daughter of Mr. Ridgemount, the insanely rich owner of the Ridgemount hotel chain, including Surfer's Paradise Ridgemount Resort, her two brothers being Ty and George Ridgemount. She is usually able to get away with almost anything, with the main exception being in "Another Grom Bites the Dust", after the wild party she threw at the hotel prior to "Welcome to Paradise, Dudes!" Mr. Ridgemount decides to arrange for his daughter to move into the staff housing and work as a waitress in the dining room, in order to show him that she can be responsible. Towards the end of the second episode, she is shown to meet up with the other main characters, and decided to share a room with Fin and Emma. She is the youngest of the six protagonists, being two years younger than Johnny and a year younger than Fin, Emma, Reef and Broseph.
Season 1At first Lo is not very good at her job, due to Kelly, the dining room's snobbish manager/head waitress, constantly bossing her around and being a dictator to her, and skipping her shifts in order to go shopping in the local gift shop or go to the spa in the hotel. She is a very friendly and cooperative teammate when it comes to resolving problems, even though she helps at most of the problems because she doesn't want to stay working in the hotel for the rest of the summer. Much like Johnny, Lo knows a lot about the hotel, as proven in "Charging into the Night", where she guides Fin, Reef and Broseph through the boiler room in the hotel basement. Lo tries to constantly prove to her dad that she is responsible, but most of those attempts backfire. When Lo booked an awesome surf tour, the most priceless surfboard gets broken in half. Lo even helped the resort during a surfing contest by making the kids she watches do some work, but when she was about to be given back her penthouse room key, her dad erroneously assumed that Lo was running a child labor camp and changed his mind. Even though Lo doesn't like to work, she can be good at her jobs.
Lo has by far had the most jobs in the show. When Lo is first forced to work, she is placed by her father in the DR as a waitress. Her job there sucks and she barely does any real work, which upsets Kelly. When Bummer needs a child sitter for the hotel kids, Lo is supposed to take care of them for just one day, but ends up getting the job permanently. She does a pretty good job with the kids, but after letting them do what they want, her dad transfers her to Housekeeping.
Lo tried to save Her brother Ty from Kelly. Kelly was about to steal the entire Ridgemount family fortune.
- She is one of two groms to have both their real name and nickname known (the other being Reef, although only his real first name is known).
- She is the shortest character among the groms.
- She is shown to own a Jeep, which was driven into the hotel's pool prior to the first episode. By the time of the sixth episode, she has had her learner's permit for two weeks.
- Lo's favorite breed of dog is Yorkshire Terrier.
- Lo's favorite color is fuchsia.
- Lo claims to be on a vegan diet for her skin in "Board and Confused", but in a later episode ("Sweet, Sweet, Meat Cheat"), Lo decides to start a vegetarian diet.
- Lo is spoiled, as many claim. She also doesn't take things as seriously as they should be taken.
- Lo's surfboard is a yellow shortboard with purple waves on it, which she refers to as a "shorty."
- She is given the new job of being the hotel's child sitter in "Reef And That Evil Totem".
- In her Teletoon profile, it implies that her mother would let her get away with anything, even "murder", although Lo has never killed anyone.
- She has many credit cards, two of which are a gold and platinum card.
- She has mad sweet talking and flirting skills, which she uses on Reef and Bummer in "Charging into the Night".
- Lo´s counterparts are Caitlin Cooke from 6teen and Lindsay from the Total Drama series.
- After the events of "Endless Bummer", she has been reassigned to Housekeeping.
- She has many swimsuits which she bought in "Reef And That Evil Totem," but she only wears one swimsuit.
- She has a Purple/Violet iPhone.
- She is staying in room 202 with Fin and Emma in the staff housing.
- Until "The Make-Out Fake-Out", she had only one known boyfriend in the series, Kai.
- Lo's situation is very similar to that of Caitlin Cooke from 6teen.
- In the first season, it was implied that she may have had a small crush on Reef, despite trying to get him and Fin together. In the first episode of the second season, she pretended to date Reef to make her ex-boyfriend, Curtis, jealous, and she and Reef eventually started dating for real. However, they break up at the end of the second season (which is also technically the series finale).
- Lo is taught to be a 'spoiled brat.'
- Lo is one of the few characters shown to have her ears pierced.
- Lo wears a purple flower on the left side of her hair, except when she is sleeping and in a few episodes where it changes sides.
- One of Lo's pet names is Kitten, as said by her father in "Endless Bummer."
- Until "Grom Fest", she is mostly the only one to have ever kissed Reef on the lips, besides Fin nearly kissing him in "Fast Times when the Rip Tide's High" and "Clinging in the Rain". This changed when Fin finally did kiss Reef on the lips at the end of "Grom Fest". Both Lo and Fin have also kissed him on the cheek in "Hunka Hunka Burning Reef".
- When Lo is lying her ears wiggle, as seen in "Grumpy Old Brahs".
- Lo did not compete in Gromfest, but was seen rooting Reef on in that event (and later, Broseph).
- While Lo's never shown surfing as often as the rest of the main six, she's generally shown to be a very good surfer--she's at least skilled enough at the sport to be able to ride a shortboard, which are typically more difficult to use/maneuver than a longboard.
- By the end of the series, she quickly reveal to Johnny that she had a crush on Broseph.
- Even though Lo was reassigned to housekeeping, in "A Prank Too Far" she is seen wearing her wench uniform from the Pirate Ship.
- It is claimed by Mrs. Ridgemount in "Another Grom Bites the Dust" that Lo had just graduated from Grade 11 at the end of that school year, but this is most likely a goof by the show's writers. Lo, who is only 15 years old, would actually have passed from Grade 9 to Grade 10 under British Columbia's secondary school system. (In "The Pirate who Came to Lunch", Lo stated she needed to work on her back to school tan.)
- However, it is possible that Lo might have skipped a grade.
- Although Lo states that she received her learner's driving permit two weeks earlier, her age at the time (15 years old) makes her too young to hold a learner's permit at that point. British Columbia law states that the minimum age for someone to be able to drive legally is 16 years of age, which Lo is not yet.
- Lo's height changes throughout the series.
- Lo's purple flower that she wears in her hair changes sides throughout the series.
- Lo's twin bracelets disappear and appear on one wrist, throughout the series.
