Carissa Moore has a reputation that proceeds her. She’s a five-time world champ and a force in the water. But off the water, Moore is legitimately one of the kindest and most genuine people you’ll ever come across. She’s all about paying homage to her culture and giving back to the surf community.
A prime example? In 2018, Moore founded a non-profit that’s all about empowering and inspiring young women. Through Moore Aloha, the native Hawaiian hosts events that include activities like surfing, yoga, lei making, hula dancing, beach cleanups, journaling and goal setting, and body-image talks. Here, the Olympic gold medalist talks with us about the mission of Moore Aloha, and how girls can get involved.
