Pro surfer Carissa Moore conquers the world's most challenging waves with brilliance and finesse. The Honolulu native has collected 11 National Scholastic Surfing Association titles—more than any other male or female surfer. No wonder she's been dubbed the female personification of Kelly Slater.
At this year's U.S. Open of Surfing—an annual competition in Huntington Beach, Calif. that brings together the country's best surfers, BMXer and skateboarders—Moore made history when she claimed the women's first-place prize of $50,000.
STACK caught up with Moore fresh off the waves. Listen in as she talks about what it's like reppin' Nike 6.0 and the bright future ahead for women's surfing.
