Carissa Moore is looking to add another trophy to go next to her Olympic gold medal.
Later this week, she’ll be going for her fifth world championship, when the World Surfing League hosts its first ever Rip Curl Finals. She’ll be riding the waves at the Lower Trestles in San Clemente, California. The men’s and women’s world titles will be decided on the same day for the first time in history. Moore comes into the event as the number one ranked surfer in the world, fresh off winning the first ever Olympic gold medal in women’s surfing. Being number one automatically earns her a place in the best two out of three title match. The first surfer to win two heats will be crowned the 2021 WSL world champion.
The competition will happen sometime between tomorrow and September 17th, depending on which day presents the most optimum surf conditions.
