Can Oceanside Surfer Caity Simmers repeat SuperGirl Surf Pro Win?

OCEANSIDE, CA – The Nissan Super Girl Surf Pro returns to Oceanside Sept. 17-19 for its 15th year at Oceanside Pier. The nationally televised event is the world’s largest women’s surfing competition, with more than 80 of the world’s top surfing professionals scheduled to compete.

Oceanside City surfing champion Caitlin Simmers won the Super Girl Surf Pro 2020 and is the youngest competitor to win the test. With a recent win at a recent Huntington Beach Surf event, Caity is looking forward to competing in next week’s Super Girl Pro to see if she can repeat last year’s victory.

Caity Simmers has achieved an impressive number of victories in the surfing competition, including a gold medal at the 2018 ISA Junior World Surfing Championships in Huntington Beach when she was 13 years old. The winner of the Vans US Open Pro Junior 2019. In the 2020 USA Prime Series and just last month she won the Jack’s Surfboards Pro QS 1,000 test.

The Patch talked to Caity about the upcoming Super Girl Surf Pro, what she’s been doing since last year’s win and her way of living and sailing Oceanside.

Hi Caity, it’s great to talk to you. Last year he became the youngest surfer to win the Super Girl Surf Pro, which is really amazing.

I’ve heard that since then you’ve been to a lot of interesting places. Where have you traveled?

I went to Nicaragua and then I went to Costa Rica for this Vans Stab High contest and then I came back from the outside banks.

Did you like surfing anywhere better than others?

I think surfing was better in Nicaragua, but I had a lot of fun in Costa Rica because I was with some of my friends and it was a lot of fun.

How have you been in the other competitions?

I had a competition in Huntington like I won a month ago. It was before my trip that I had just returned for another contest.

So this will be your second time competing in the Supergirl Pro, is there anyone in particular you consider your competition tougher?

Definitely my biggest competition would be Sawyer Lindblad. She is very rude.

Now that you’ve competed all over the world, is there any competition you’re really looking forward to doing?

This one, SuperGirl Pro because it’s my break at home and 10 minutes from home. So I love it.

Do you have a favorite place to surf in Oceanside?

Honestly, it depends on what time of year. Lately I’ve been sailing north of the pier because it’s been a lot of fun. In summer it improves due to all the waves of the south.

How long do you surf?

I’ve probably been sailing for nine years. In fact, I’m 16 in October, but there are those who still print that I’m only 14 years old.

Do you go to high school here in Oceanside or to an online school?

I do an online program through Coastal Academy.

Any plans for the future?

I don’t really think too far ahead, but I’d like to keep browsing.

We agree with Caity. We agree! All Oceanside means you can repeat your victory in the Super Girl Pro this year. Good Luck!
