At the start of the year 2 x World Champion Carissa Moore of Hawaii took her family off to Morocco to catch the North Atlantic swells. She explained to Red Bull, “My dad and I went to the Hawaii International Film Festival, saw the film “Gaza Surf Club” and were inspired by it to go to Gaza. A lot of women don’t surf there, especially past a certain age, so we thought it’d be a cool opportunity to inspire some change in that part of the world. We learned quickly just how unsafe Gaza was at the time, and Israel was our next option. We lined up with an organization called Surfing For Peace and went primarily to participate in one of their events. The event was really emotional, powerful and everyone there on our trip was so happy that we were able to be a part of it. It’s one of the rare occasions, especially in that part of the world, where Muslim kids, Jewish kids and Christians all come together in peace around the common love of surfing. It was incredible.”
