Conlogue Wins the 2012 ASP 6-Star Swatch Girls Pro France
Kaenon surfer Courtney Conlogue won the 2012 ASP 6-Star Swatch Girls Pro France last weekend, marking her second consecutive ASP Women’s Star Event win this year. During the finals of the Les Bourdaines, Seignosse, France event, Conlogue out-surfed Paige Hareb to capture yet another tour win.
“The final went really well and conditions definitely got super tricky towards the end there,” said Conlogue. “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.”
In addition to this landmark win, which solidifies Conlogue as the point leader in the ASP Women’s World Rankings, Conlogue previously won the 6-star Telstra Drug Aware Pro at Western Australia’s Margaret River in March and the Commonwealth Bank Beachley Classic in Australia in April. The next stop on the tour is in Cote des Basques, Biarritz, France for the Roxy Pro next week.

“I’m speechless right now!” Conlogue said. “It’s been two years on the ASP Women’s World Championship Tour where I kept losing in the Quarterfinals. Then today after winning my Quarterfinal I just tried to go and win the thing.”

Courtney Conlogue Relaxes in London
Women’s surf star Courtney Conlogue recently took a break from the ASP Qualifying Series World Tour, in a little city called London. She has almost twice as many points as the 2nd place ranked women’s competitor, allowing her to skip the Billabong Women’s Azores Island Pro competition and enjoy some time across the pond. What better way to see the city than in a pair of Eden Tortoise C12 sunglasses.
Courtney Conlogue Wins ASP 6-Star Sri Lankan Airlines Pro
The Women’s ASP 6-Star Sri Lankan Airlines Pro featured a final with young Californians Courtney Conlogue and Lakey Peterson going head-to-head in the killer surf. Both surfers turned in great scores, but it was Conlogue who ended up pulling out the win (Conlogue 13.77; Peterson 10.03).
“Lakey (Peterson) and I are great friends and have been surfing against each other for a long time,” Conlogue said. “I was nervous on that last wave, I knew it was a good one and that I’d have to push it to get a good score. Luckily I did some nice turns and won the Final. I love this place, the waves are great and I’m already looking forward to coming back next year.”

Courtney Conlogue: OC Surfer of the Year
During the US Open of Surfing, Kaenon’s Courtney Conlogue was named the Female OC Surfer of the Year, for the fourth year in a row, at a ceremony held on the corner of PCH and Main Street in Huntington Beach, CA. Crowds gathered as Courntey received the honor, just a stones throw from her home break near the pier. Courtney wore Burnet in White G12 during the event:
Courtney competed during the US Open, advancing to the quarter finals where she went head-to-head with Carissa Moore, the reigning 2011 World Champion. Despite her massive scores, Carissa pulled ahead during the final minutes of the heat, knocking Courtney out of the competition. Her spirits remained undampened, however, as she left everything in the water and posted some of the highest scores in the quarter finals, something anyone should be proud of.
Courtney Conlogue Wins ASP 6-Star Event in Portugal
Kaenon team rider Courtney Conlogue won the ASP 6-Star Estoril Surf & Music Billabong Girls Pro in Portugal last weekend. Courtney faced off against Lakey Peterson in the final, barely edging out a narrow lead early in the round. It wasn’t until the final five minutes that Conlogue caught a left and impressed the judges with two backhand snaps, scoring a 7.67 (of 10) which secured her victory.
“I feel pretty good now and it has been a crazy week and I’m stoked to be on the podium in this event,” said Conlogue in an interview on ASPWorldTour.com. “Every single heat I had to be on my toes because it was not an easy win. Now I am heading home to have some rest which I am looking forward to because it has been a long year so far.”

Conlogue Takes 3rd in Swatch Pro, France
Courtney Conlogue finished third at the Swatch Pro World Tour event in France, after an intense semifinal against Sally Fitzgibbons. Conlogue led early after a combination of backhand hooks and floaters that put her well ahead of her competition. However, with less than one minute remaining, Fitzgibbon paddled into the best wave of the round, scoring an 8.5 out of 10 as well as the victory over Courtney.
“Definitely in this contest Sally is one of the toughest competitors,” began Conlogue. “She and I compete against each other all the time and it is either one or the other but she got my number today. I will see how it goes in the next one but here she surfed very well so it was not a bad battle to lose.”
