Carissa Moore

Olympic Gold Medalist, Surfing

At the age of 29, Carissa Moore is married to the love of her life and travels the world as a Professional Surfer. She spends six months of the year living out of a suitcase, chasing waves, and following her dream. The other six months you’ll find her at home in Honolulu, Hawai’i with her Husband, Luke, and two dogs, Maya and Tuffy.

Her dad taught her how to surf when she was five years old at Waikiki Beach and was immediately hooked. The ocean is her happy place and she’s so blessed to be doing what she loves everyday. 2019 was her tenth season competing on the World Championship Tour of Surfing and is grateful for her five World Titles in 2011, 2013, 2015, 2019, and 2021.

Winning a contest is great but the feeling is only temporary. On her 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 her, happiness and success aren’t defined by the trophies or accolades but by the small victories and simple joys everyday.

She’s inspired by those who live authentically and have the courage to be vulnerable. Her dream is to encourage others to live their passions, be unapologetically themselves and to take the time for others and the world around them.
