The ASP has crowned Hawaiian Carissa Moore the new princess of surfing.
BARELY OUT OF THE GROM stage, Carissa Moore, 18, of Honolulu became the Association of Surfing Professional’s youngest world champion–female or male–after winning at its July 15th event in Biarritz, France.
According to PR Newswire, Carissa, like many Hawaiian teens, has dreamt of being part of the professional surfing circuit since she started. Before the July 15th competition, she had already landed 11 National Scholastic Surfing Association Championships and was the youngest Vans Triple Crown champion, as well as the youngest female to ever appear on the cover of SURFER magazine.
For the recent high school student, Carissa’s post-graduate plans seem pretty sick. Check out the video of her ripping from Hawaii News Now.
