Carissa Moore vs Taj Burrow in Men’s Vans Triple Crown of Surfing

The Mens world tour surfers have dreaded this day for a long time, not because they dislike female surfing, but they fear them as competitors. The womens tour surfers have closed the talent gap in the last two years, and the men fear to be the first to fall to a female.

With Carrissa claiming the women’s world title and officially clocked as the fastest surfer on either tour, she looks primed to make history. Carrissa competed against men at trestles a couple years ago, and got smoked by Adriano and Shane Beschen. But now she’s on her home turf with the pride of Hawaii on her shoulders.

Taj drew Carissa in the first round of the Hawaiian Pro at Haleiwa, and he’s already hearing the heckles from fellow WT bros, but he respects the reality of defeat “It’s an awful thought losing to a girl! But she hangs the tail out most turns. If I were to lose to a girl a few years ago I’d be super freaked, but Carissa definitely rips.”

Watch tomorrow live during the Hawaiian Pro at Haleiwa. The way she’s been ripping, dont be suprised to see her steal the whole Vans Triple Crown.
