And now Nike 6.0 have released this sweet tribute to Carissa, who at 18 is the youngest women’s world champ ever and the first surfer to make every final in a season to win the world title.
Carissa had this to say at the Cotes Des Basques, “I dreamed of surfing at this level my whole life since I was a little kid and I don’t think you can ever expect or anticipate the feeling. It is amazing. There is no place I would rather be right now.”
The Nike 6.0 video is called “Take the Time” and includes some cute footage of her surfing as a kid, which also kinda explains how she became the ridiculously talented surfer she is today.
