Courtney Conlogue has risen up through the ranks of Women’s surfing just a little bit under the radar. She didn’t arrive under a much hyped banner and hasn’t been splashed over men’s mags as a model, but the girl from Santa Ana, California has emerged as a real contender.
She has got this far with a sick style and a very solid work ethic, it’s lead to two career victories already and being a genuine title contender last year. This year has to be a step up season for her, you can run with the big players for a year by accident, but becoming one of them is a whole other matter.
We think she’ll step it up though and with a powerful forehand attack, she has a real chance to take out the whole event on the Gold Coast.
