Yesterday Carissa Moore competed in her first heat at the Vans World Cup of surfing.
Up against the boys Carissa was pitted against Sunny Garcia (13.93) def Mitchel Coleborn (10.00), Carissa Moore (7.83) and Alain Riou (5.60). Unfortunatly, Carissa's heat was plagued with a lack of waves from the beginning and after a brief flurry of waves where Carissa posted her first scores, the surfers spent the rest of their heat waiting for a chance to post a score. The waves she did catch were impressive showing the crowd that she could stand her ground with the boys and given one of the waves that Sunny or Mitch got they would have been in trouble!
Can't wait to see her out there again and hopefully she gets another chance to ruffle the boys feathers in future competitions now she has points on the board it is just a matter of time before we see her in with the boys again.
Check out her heat here.
