Hawaii’s Carissa Moore eyes consecutive wins at Rip Curl Narrabeen Classic starting Thursday


Carissa Moore

Fresh off of a victory at the Rip Curl Newcastle Cup, reigning World Champion, Hawaii’s Carissa Moore is eyeing consecutive wins at Narrabeen in Australia at the The Rip Curl Narrabeen Classic presented by Corona, the third stop on the World Surf League’s 2021 Championship Tour which gets underway with first call on Thursday morning Hawaii time.

Moore, who currently holds the rankings lead in the WSL Women’s Championship Tour will be looking to cement her spot in the Rip Curl WSL Finals, which will be held at Lower Trestles this September, with another solid result this week in Narrabeen.

“It’s great to be here in Narrabeen,” Moore said. “Last week was awesome in Newcastle. I was so happy to share a Final with Isabella (Nichols), but it is a long season and this is a new event, which means this is a clean slate. With events so close together like this, you can be on top of the mountain one week and down in the valley the next, so all I can do not is refocus and do my best once the first heat starts.”
