Cardiff-by-the-Sea, California (June 5, 2008) – Courtney Conlogue, the 15-year-old surf phenom out of Santa Ana, CA, powers into summer with a third place at the Quiksilver International Surfing Association (ISA) World Junior Surfing Championship. This win follows her spring win at the National Scholastic Surfing Association (NSSA) West Coast Championships presented by No Fear. In preparation to step into a leading role on the women’s stage of competitive surfing, Conlogue trained diligently on her local southern California breaks over the winter. The results so far this season demonstrate that her hard work is paying off.
“It is such an honor to be at the Quiksilver ISA World Junior Surfing Championship in France surfing with the whole team USA,” says Conlogue. “I thoroughly enjoyed the waves in Seignosse and taking in the culture. Finding some solid point totals here on the world stage is a great confidence booster.”
At the Quiksilver ISA World Junior Surfing Championship in Seignosse, France, Conlogue finished the weekend with a third place in the women’s under 18 division. She soared across the pond hot taking first in almost every heat she surfed going into Saturday’s finals with a high score of 17 points, a record for her round.
Her strong, competitive surfing landed her on top of the podium in the NSSA West Coast Championships presented by No Fear, Open Division, this spring. She sealed the deal with a scorching backside attack on an overhead left which posted a high 8.67 score. Now her sights are set on continuing her winning NSSA season at the NSSA National Open Championships from June 24 – 28 at Lower Trestles in California.
“I’m going to train really hard this month and keep my game on,” a focused, Conlogue said after the Western Championships. “I am striving for a strong result to wrap up the NSSA season.”
Following the NSSA National Open Championships, Conlogue heads to Puerto Escondido, Mexico to represent the United States in Summer X Games 14 July 7 – 11. Then she’s back to her local break, the Huntington Beach Pier, to compete in the Honda U.S. Open of Surfing Events Presented by O’Neill, July 18 – 27. While at the Open, Conlogue will compete in the Pac Sun Battle of the Brands, the S3 Supergirl Junior Pro, and the WQS 6 star women’s surfing event.
