SWATCH PROTEAM SURFER COURTNEY CONLOGUE WINS VANS US OPEN
This just in from Huntington Beach, California: Swatch Proteam member and home-town
favorite Courtney Conlogue has won the Vans US Open of Surfing, a high-profile World Surf
League (WSL) tour stop and one of the world’s largest surf competitions. It’s a great victory for the Santa Ana, California born surfer – her first big win on the Women’s Championship Tour after suffering an injury earlier this year. Her achievement is all the more impressive as it came against strong competition from the world’s top surfers, including the current world leader and six-time world champion, Stephanie Gilmore. „I’m so excited!“, said Courtney, „and thankful for the support from Swatch and everyone I have around. Having my family and team close by helped my comeback after the injury and allowed me to express my best surf throughout this event.“
An enthusiastic member of the Swatch Proteam, Courtney Conlogue was joined in Huntington Beach by her fellow Proteam members Coco Ho, Tia Blanco and Jhonny Guerrero.
As new presenting partner of the Vans US Open of Surfing Swatch strengthens its long-term
commitment to surfing and the surf lifestyle, where sports and art go hand in hand.
Congratulations, Courtney, on this terrific win!
