Christmas Surf

Christmas Time!!

Merry Christmas!! Hope your day was filled with lots of love, family and good memories. I had a great Christmas… simple but spent it with the people that matter most to me. Best part was surfing at Diamond Head with my dad, Cayla, Luke, Tuffy, Uncle Kent and Uncle Mike. Luke paddled out on the kayak with Tuffy, Cayla and I tandem on a longboard, Dad was filming with the GoPro, my Uncle Kent and Uncle Mike were SUPing. Such a rad way to start the day! Here is a little clip and some fun pics highlighting our holiday festivities!

Target Maui Pro

Hey everyone out there in web world! What’s happening?! Recovering from last week’s thanksgiving festivities and feast? I’m still buzzing from all the excitement. The Target Maui Pro was a huge success! I was a little worried with the bay being completely flat for the first few days of the waiting period but by the fourth day mother nature didn’t disappoint. We got beautiful waves, the women were surfing great, and the excitement and anticipation up until the very end for the world title was intense. I am so thankful that Target, Schick Hydro Silk and the ASP stepped up and brought Hawaii back to our tour. I hope it is here to stay :)

I couldn’t have asked for a better end to my competitive year. After a tough couple of events and falling out of the title race in Europe, it sure felt good to compete at home and have no pressure. It was also extra special that my whole family was there to share the win with. This thanksgiving definitely has to be up there with one of the best. Surfing and spending it with my family was the absolute perfect way to celebrate. That night we had an untraditional Japanese thanksgiving dinner, then later celebrated Steph’s sixth world title with some Karaoke! It was a blast! Have to admit JD Johnson, my Target team manager, stole the show with his rap performance.

Maui is one of the most beautiful islands in the world so the first few days of no waves and competition just felt like we were on an amazing vacation. Luke and I were spoiled and stayed at the Ritz Carlton where we relaxed by the pool and played tennis everyday. We did some sightseeing and drove around the head of Maui, walked around Lahaina’s Front Street and did a little shopping, ate delicious food, relaxed and enjoyed. The best part of our “stay-cation” was the Windward Aviation Inc. Helicopter tour RedBull organized for the top 17 girls. It was breathtaking! There are not words or pictures adequate enough to describe the sights, smells and experience we had. Once in a lifetime… I tried to capture it the best I could but the pictures really don’t do it justice. We saw dolphins, hovered over gigantic, untouched, pristine waterfalls, and even came across a massive 15 foot tiger shark!! Crazy! The mountains were so enormous they disappeared into the clouds and kept going to the heavens. It was incredible!! Thanks RedBull for really “giving us wings.”

There is so much to be thankful for. Lots of love to you all today and everyday. Xx,
Carissa
