Carissa Moore: Carrying surfers' aloha spirit to the top of the podium | Wait For It

Carissa Moore was named the youngest surfing world champion ever. Shortly after this achievement, she was inducted into the Surfers Hall of Fame and the state of Hawaii declared a Carissa Moore Day to honor her achievements.

Did she bring home the first-ever gold medal in the history of Olympic surfing? Find out in the latest edition of Wait for it.
