Caity Simmers Is From A Place With The Worst Waves and Best Street Ninjas

Discussed in a 20 question Q&A from her recent hang with the Sun Bum crew.

Words by Coral McDuffee
Reading Time: 2 minutes

Caity Simmers’ perfect day looks something like this:

1. Wake-up between 7- 8am (varies with the amount of surf and jet lag). 
2. Cat cuddles.
3. A homemade vanilla latte that’s a 15/10. 
4. Zombie-mode carpool to the beach with friends, impeccable fits, and lo-fi tunes. 
5. Thorough surf-check and some lot trolling—Lauren Hill blasts.  
6. Fiberglass gets pulled from the truck bed and the lineup goes under siege. 
7. A soiree at the local taco spot—a gem, we will not be disclosing. 
8. Front side grinds at the skatepark for dessert.
9. Quick stop at Stab’s HQ to work on personal stuff
10. A jacuzzi or sauna sesh.

Repeat (steps 4-7).

One of our best interns.

A few weeks ago, the crew at Sun Bum joined in. They fit the framework flawlessly and produced a twenty question interview that is pure butter. Here are our favorite crispy tidbits:

SunBum: What’s something random that most people might not know about you?

Caity: I have a brother that’s really good at yo-yoing and surfing. I used to do hip hop and I used to be really into boogie boarding.

Yeah, she still rips a bog.

What’s your motto?

Live fast die young bad girls do it well 

How would you describe Oceanside to someone who has never heard of it?

A working class beach town with the worst waves and the best street ninjas.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years from now where do you see yourself and what are you doing?

In 5 years I guess I see myself on tour, with maybe 1-2 word titles hopefully, and a couple banger surf edits. Wherever I am, hopefully I’m getting pretty barreled.

What was the last concert you went to?
I haven’t really been to a proper concert but the last time I saw live music I’m pretty sure it was my neighbor’s band, they’re rad

Let’s hear your wildest dream.

Make a generation defining surf film that inspires people to go surf. Getting Kool-aid colored barrels with my friends.
