She began her day with a fantastic 9.57 on her first wave, while Wright hit a rough patch right off the bat that she could never recover from (finding only two small waves that yielded scores of scores of 3.67 and 2.50 respectively.) These two are being built up by the tour as the "next generation" of bitter rivals, a move that makes sense given their close competition for world #1 as well as their similar ages (Wright just turned 19 on Sunday). I'm sure we'll see much more of both of them in the near future. In the meantime, Congrats Carissa! You're back where you belong.
Congratulations Carissa Moore!
I know it's not directly UH related, but I think anything about surfing is close enough? In any case, Carissa Moore, the 20 year old Punahou graduate, regained her #1 in the world ranking earlier today after beating 19 year old Aussie Tyler Wright in the Rip Curl Pro at Bells Beach. It was Moore's second consecutive ASP tour win and 8th overall.
