Courtney Conlogue Wins ASP 6-STAR Cabreiroa Surfing Girls
PANTIN, Spain (Saturday, August 28, 2010) – Courtney Conlogue (USA) today claimed the Cabreiroa Surfing Girls title an ASP Women’s Star-Series 6-Star sanctioned event downing Laura Enever (AUS) in the 35-minute final.
Quarter-finalists for the Ferrolterra Movistar Pantin Classic Presented by Billabong were also decided in an intense morning session of competition.
Clean 2-3ft (1m) waves were on offer with the occasional bigger set during the morning as the swell increased slightly. Long lefts peeled off the main bank at Pantin with all competitors able to lay down combinations of manoeuvres.
Courtney Conlogue (USA) 18, left no loose ends as she tied up her maiden Cabreiroa Surfing Girls title on the small high tide peak.
Starting off her day with a 19.10 total out of a possible 20 in quarter-final nº1, Conlogue kept her focus through the semi-final to eventually dominate the final clash against Enever.
Facing Enever for the second time in an ASP Women’s Star-Series 6-Star final in less than two weeks Conlogue started with a solid ride then proceeded to build on her scores. Replacing backup scoring rides while Enever searched in vain to find a decent score to open her account, Conlogue cruised home to victory.
“It was exciting to be in two finals back-to-back with Laura and it was fun competing against her again. It was definitely a lot of hard work and it paid off in the long run.”
“That quarter-final was so much fun today,” explained Conlogue. “I just kept catching wave after wave and I was having so much fun I didn’t want to stop.
I wanted to give everyone a good show and we had 30-minutes for the heat so it was fun. I love Pantin and Spain and I’ve been having a great time so I definitely want to return next year.”
Laura Enever (AUS) had to be content with runner-up position overall in the Cabreiroa Surfing Girls 2010 edition. Having taken out Tyler Wright (AUS) in a closely fought semi-final, Enever never stopped searching for scoring rides however the wave starved final 10 minutes left her short of her required score.
“I am stoked to make another final and get another result. This time Courtney got back at me from the last event but it’s all good. In the final at the end there was a lack of waves but it has definitely been a fun week here in Pantin. To get to back-to-back finals is never easy and I’m really happy with this overall result.”
Pauline Ado (FRA) took out the 2010 European Women’s Series Title finishing equal 5th today along with her nearest rivals Cannelle Bulard (REU) and Alizee Arnaud (FRA). It caps off an incredible month for the young natural-footer who also claimed the 2010 European Women’s Junior Title.
“I feel really good to win this title especially after winning the title in the junior series. After I lost today in the quarters I was watching Alizee and Cannelle because I knew if they got a good result they could win it too.
I have mixed feelings today because I lost but I also won the European title so it is strange right now.”
“I have been coming here to Pantin for a few years and I have won this event and I also remember I lost the title here so I have my revenge this year. My parents and dog (laughs) are here with me because I can’t always take them with me. They can see what I do and winning the title with them here is very special.”
