Duke Kahanamoku prophesied that some day the Olympics might host a surfing competition. Since that has finally come true, Hawaii today honored Carissa Moore for her 4X World Surf League Women's Championship and for her invitation as the first Hawaiian surfer to represent the USA at the Japan Olympics in 2020. The ceremony was held at the Duke Kahanamoku statue in Waikiki. Jodi Wilmott hosted and Carissa and her husband Luke Unterman both spoke to the attending crowd. Congratulations Carissa for your athletic prowess and your role modeling for all young athletes to come.
