LA GRANDE PLAGE, Biarritz/France (Friday, July 15, 2011) –
Carissa Moore (HAW), 18, has just made ASP history as the youngest ever ASP Women’s World Champion, clinching her maiden title today at the Roxy Pro Biarritz.
It was only last year that Carissa Moore, as a rookie on the tour, was beaten by Stephanie Gilmore who claimed the title.
This year however the roles have been reversed and it was Gilmore’s win over Sally Fitzgibbons which has given Moore the title.Wwe doubt this will be the only World Championship for the young surfer.
