Half way through January 2019! Every time I write a journal entry I am baffled at where the time has gone. I am getting ready for the first Moore Aloha Surf Camp this weekend! A lot of planning has gone into the next few days and I am excited to see how it all turns out. Surfing and our love for the ocean is the platform that brings us together. At this camp, I want to create a space where girls can feel empowered to be themselves, make friendships, and learn. I am really looking forward to meeting all the participants! Oahu had a run of fun swell and beautiful conditions the past few days. Haleiwa was absolutely dreamy. I got to share the lineup with a few of my heroes. Jack Johnson got

 

About

CURRENTLY I AM...

28 years old, married to the love of my life and traveling the world as a Professional Surfer. I spend six months of the year living out of a suitcase, chasing waves and following my dream. The other six months you'll find me at home in Honolulu, Hawaii with my Husband, Luke, and Two dogs, Maya and Tuffy.

 

my Dad taught me how to surf when I was five years old at Waikiki Beach and I was immediately hooked. the ocean is my happy place! I feel so blessed to be doing what I love everyday. 2019 is my tenth season competing on the World Championship Tour of Surfing. I am grateful for my three world titles in 2011, 2013 and 2015.

 

Winning a contest is great but the feeling is only temporary. on my journey, what stands out the most are all the moments in between... the belly aching laughs, breathtaking sunsets, yummy meals shared with friends and incredible adventures. to me Happiness and success aren't defined by the trophies or accolades but by the small victories and simple joys everyday.   

 

I'm inspired by those who live authentically and have the courage to be vulnerable. My dream is to encourage others to live their passions, be unapologetically themselves and to take the time for others and the world around them.

 

when I'm not surfing, you can find me scrapbooking, visiting with my family, training or taking naps. I am horrified of heights and holding earth worms. I love food and have a major sweet tooth.   

 

This is me in a nutshell. I'm genuinely myself. My journey is imperfect but I am laughing, loving and learning every step of the way. Thanks for sharing it with me.  

 

Xx,

Carissa
