What Makes Us: Riss is a new film from espnW. Part of the network's new short film series on women in sports, Riss reveals a rarely seen personal side of Carissa Moore (HAW).
In the film, the two-time World Champion describes her hurt and surprise when, after winning her first World Title, much of the media focused on her body instead of her surfing. But Moore, who went on to win another Championships and is now vying for a third, explains how she overcame the criticism and her own self-doubt to persevere.
Riss was directed by The Mundo Sisters, who partnered with espnW for the What Makes Us series, and is now available at espn.go.com/espnw.
