Name: Coco Ho

Age: 26

Occupation: Professional Surfer

From: Oahu, Hawaii

Location: Oceanside Pier

Coco Ho was competing in the SuperGirl Pro in Oceanside on July 29. At about 2:20 p.m., she won the round.

Ho, 26, is a Hawaiian native, the daughter of pro surfer Michael Ho and niece of Derek, also a professional surfer in the ’80s and ’90s.

When Ho finished her heat, young girls approached her to take photos of her and her Matt Biolos 5´6˝.

“My advice to the younger girls and boys coming up in surfing is to get the ocean knowledge down....

“My gnarliest wipeout was at Margaret River at Western Australia. I got stuck on the rocks with my leash and it held me under.”

Her favorite spot to surf in San Diego is about 13 miles south from the competition. “I spent a lot of time in Encinitas.”
