Carissa Kainani Moore (born August 27, 1992) is an American professional surfer and the 2011, 2013, 2015 and 2019 WSL Women's World Tour Champion.[2][3]

In 2013, she was named by Glamour magazine as one of their Women of the Year.[4] She became a member of the Surfers' Hall of Fame in 2014.[5]

Early life[edit]

When she was five years old, Carissa started surfing with her dad off the beaches of Waikiki in her native Honolulu, Hawaii.[6] "Dad taught me how to surf when I was about four or five years old at Waikiki Beach and I was immediately hooked." [7]

She started collecting wins at NSSA junior surf competitions and top spots at the ISA World Junior Surfing Championships, where she helped Hawaii win a team victory. In all, she clinched a record 11 NSSA amateur titles, and at age 16 in 2008, she became the youngest champion at a Triple Crown of Surfing event when she won the Reef Hawaiian Pro.[8]

Career[edit]

In 2010, Carissa qualified to compete on the ASP World Tour, now called the World Surf League. She won two major contests, finished third overall, and was named Rookie of the Year.

The following season, Carissa was a youngster to watch on the World Tour and she lived up to her reputation, winning three events and claiming her first World crown, unseating four-time defending champ Stephanie Gilmore in the process. At 18, she became the youngest person – male or female – to win a surfing world title. Never one to turn down a challenge, that year Carissa also became the first woman to compete in Oahu's Triple Crown of Surfing, typically an all-male event featuring the world's best surfers.

Carissa took top World Tour honors again in 2013 and 2015.

Carissa has been named an Adventurer of the Year by National Geographic, a Woman of the Year by Glamour magazine and Top Female Surfer in the SURFER magazine poll (numerous times). She was inducted into the Surfers’ Hall of Fame, and the State of Hawaii declared January 4 to be Carissa Moore Day.

Carissa is well positioned to represent the United States in the 2020 Olympics, when surfing makes its debut. Growing up, she's never pictured herself competing in it since she never thought surfing would be an Olympic event.[9]

WSL Qualifying Series[edit]

In 2008, at the age of 16, Moore became the youngest winner of a Triple Crown of Surfing event when she won the Reef Hawaiian Pro, a 6-Star WQS Prime Event2.[10]

In 2009, Moore qualified for the 2010 ASP World Tour from the ASP Women's WQS.[11]

In 2010, Moore won the US Open of Surfing, a 6-Star WQS Prime Event1.[12]

In 2011, Moore received a wildcard entry into the Men's Triple Crown of Surfing, limited to the Reef Hawaiian Pro at Haleiwa and the Vans Hawaiian Pro at Sunset Beach, becoming the first woman in history to be given the honor.[13]

WSL Women’s Championship Tour[edit]

In 2007, Moore reached the Final of the ASP Women's World Tour Roxy Pro event as a wildcard, becoming the youngest surfer to reach a Final of an ASP World Title Race event. The Roxy Pro wildcard entry was the first Women's World Tour event Moore entered after success in the Roxy Pro Trials.[14]

In 2009, Moore won the ASP Women's World Tour Gidget Pro Sunset Beach event as a wildcard entrant.[15]

In 2010, Moore started competing on the ASP Women's World Tour. During her first year on the Tour Moore won both the TSB Bank Women's Surf Festival[16][17] and Rip Curl Pro Portugal.[18] Moore's 2010 Women's World Tour Ranking was 3rd overall.[19] and she was awarded the ASP Women's World Tour Rookie of the Year.[20]

In 2011, Moore was declared the ASP Women's World Champion, the youngest winner of the Title.[21] Throughout the 2011 Tour, Moore won the Billabong Rio Pro,[22] Commonwealth Bank Beachley Classic[23] and the Roxy Pro Gold Coast.[24]

In 2012, Moore finished 3rd in the 2012 ASP World Tour, failing to win any ASP World Tour events, coming runner-up in two events.

In 2013, Moore won four of the eight ASP World Tour events and became World Champion for the second time in her career.[25][26]

In 2014, Moore won three WSL Women's Championship Tour events.[27]

In 2015, she again won four Events of the WSL Championship Tour and won her third world title.[28]

In 2016, Moore's only victory was the Roxy Pro in Hossegor, France.[29]

In 2017, she finished the year at No. 5.[30]

In 2018, she finished the year at No. 3.[31]

So far, the 2019 season is going well for her (as of August 2019). Currently she's leading the 2019 WSL Women's Championship Tour. She won the Corona Open in J-Bay, South Africa and had two second-place finishes on the Gold Coast, Australia and in Rio de Janeiro [32]
