Caity Simmers, The Drama Queen
Watch 6 minutes of theatrics here.
My least favorite crowd is the one that starts kicking their legs 30 seconds before the wave actually breaks. Desperate red eyes. Drool protruding from a slack jawline. The lot that wakes up and choses violence….or to surf Lower Trestles before a the WSL Finals.
Even the greatest proponents of surf optimism have confessed to mental or emotional exhaustion after scraping for slopey A-frames at Lowers to prepare for a career event.
“It’s a weird place to practice for a comp because people are in your way on every wave. That time was so intense for me — it felt like the end of the world when I would have a bad session. Looking back, I feel like a drama queen because it’s such a quality problem to have,” Caity Simmers said when we asked her about the tilting of her latest Toasted production.
“Drama Queen” is a series of clips Caity collected before (and during) her 2023 Final Five debut at Lower Trestles. Enjoy six minutes whimsical lip lasers and A+ navigation courtesy of Miss Simmers.
