The SWATCH GIRLS PRO FRANCE ran another marathon day at Les Bourdaines, Seignosse, France. With the day before's blustery windswell building and cleaning up into lined-up 3ft (head high) peaks, the top seeds entered proceedings as Round 4 kicked off early this morning. Suitably impressed with the standard of manoeuvres, the judges were handing out excellent (8-10 point) scores like hot croissants as the likes of Sage Erickson, Leila Hurst, Canelle Bulard, Alessa Quizon and Courtney Conlogue all put together excellent rides in the early heats. "We were all super stoked when we got down here early and saw it had picked up and was glassy," admitted Sage. "I got lucky early and some good ones came to me, my board felt really good. It feels awesome to start off strong like that." The American was full value for her combined heat total of 18.40 (out of 20), the highest of the event so far. Swatch Proteam rider Courtney Conlogue was also typically impressive in the morn-ing's predominant lefthanders, fitting in some vicious combinations of backside snaps to see herself through. "When I saw the first set this morning as I was coming dow the beach I was kinda amping," said the current ASP World no 2. "I found my rhythm out there in the lefts and just had fun."
