Courtney Conlogue

Riding an ancient Local Motion twin-fin surfboard shaped before he was born, Australian pro Wade Goodall side-slipped down the face of a turquoise green wave and right into a beautiful little barrel triggering a wild roar from the huge crowd on the shoreline. A Led Zeppelin tune cranked in the background and everyone was rocking and grooving. Then California's Courtney Conologue was suddenly up and riding, flying through sections, absolutely carving on a vintage Dick Brewer pintail, further mystifying her male counterparts.
