Well, Carissa Moore’s 2015 competitive year just ended exactly where it began: on a podium, soaked in champagne, with cameras flashing away at her face and her face flashing a big smile right back at ’em.
Earlier today, Courtney Conlogue lost to Coco Ho in Round 4 at the Target Maui Pro at Honolua Bay. That loss effectively handed Carissa her third World Title. At 23 years old, that win has got to feel pretty damn sweet for ‘Riss — especially because it’d be hard to argue there are more to come.
Congrats, Carissa. And congrats, Courtney. It was a hell of a year watching you two spar.
