In 2013, Hawaii's Carissa Moore claimed her second ASP Women's World Title, but at only 21 years old it's obvious she's only getting started. Almost single-handedly responsible for raising the progressive level of her sport, she's forced the other women on tour to play catch-up. "If there's a rivalry between me and the other girls it's a friendly one," says Moore. "I really respect their surfing and who they all are as people."
