Moore wins third world surfing championship

  • WORLD SURF LEAGUE /KELLY CESTARI

    Hawaii’s Carissa Moore won her third WSL Womens World Title at the Target Maui Pro at Honolua Bay today.

Carissa Moore captured her third world surfing championship today, her first in local waters.

The title, which followed championships in 2011 in France and ‘13 in Portugal, came in the Maui Target Pro at Honolua Bay on Maui.

The 23 year old Honolulu native clinched the 2015 World Surf League championship when fellow Hawaii competitor Coco Ho defeated Moore’s closest competitor, Courtney Conlogue of California, in Round 4.

Moore, who won three events on tour this year, came to Maui leading Conlogue by 900 points.

Moore arrived on site just in time to see Ho post a 7.38 to eliminate Conlogue.

Moore, who won the Maui Target Pro in the final event of 2014, said in an interview on the World Surf League website that the victory, “Lit a fire underneath me,” that carried over to this year.
