At 21, Carissa Moore already has two ASP World Titles to her credit. The scary thing is, it looks like she's just getting started. Under the spotlight since she was 13, the surf world has watched Moore blossom from childhood into the champion that she is today. Right now, she is hands-down the most feared competitor on the ASP World Tour.

"Carissa is the complete package," four-time ASP World Champ Lisa Andersen says. "Technique, style, ability, smarts, she has it all." Sponsored by Target, Red Bull and Hurley (owned by Nike), Moore is also changing the kind of financial opportunities available to female surfers.
