Santa Ana’s Courtney Conlogue, 19, just took home another big win at the ASP 6-Star Swatch Girls Pro France after defeating New Zealand’s Paige Hareb on Friday.Conlogue is ranked 4th on the ASP Women’s World Championship Tour, and last year was number one on the World Ranking and earned ASP “Rookie of the Year.”
She surfed strong in the final heat of the Swatch Girls Pro, posting up a high 8.83 (out of 10), and backing it up with a 7.00. She also scored the only perfect 10 of the entire event.
“The final went really well and conditions definitely got super tricky towards the end there,” said Conlogue in an interview with ASP. “I just tried to go on a few waves and stick to the wall. It was a lot of trouble out there, but I’m super stoked to have won. I was just really trying hard to do well in this event.”
Conlogue told ASP she’s looking to simplify things this year, and has been working with surfboard shaper Tim Stamps to figure out boards to put under her feet.
“I’ve been working with him, figuring things out and what works best in those conditions. I want to be in the Top 3 on the World Tour, that’s my goal for this year,” she told ASP. More info: www.swatchgirlspro.com
