Moore Gets Personal on CNN

Within surfing circles, Carissa Moore‘s (HAW) reputation precedes her. But she may have found some new fans thanks to CNN. On Wednesday the news network featured Moore in their Human to Hero series, in which the pro was unusually candid.

Along with sharing some of the bullet points of her career — from the day she knew she wanted to go pro to her first Title at 18 — Moore also discusses her disappointment with her early exit at Trestles, reflecting on how to handle losses along with wins.

Currently ranked No. 4 in the world, Moore is not a Title contender this year, but she is most definitely still a threat for the Target Maui Pro event title.

Leading the Championship pack this year are three Australians: World No. 3 Tyler Wright, No. 2 Sally Fitzgibbons and No. 1 Stephanie Gilmore. Gilmore’s competitors all have a shot at winning the Title, but they’ll have their work cut out for them: Gilmore won the event at Honoloua three years in a row, up until it went on hiatus.
