There’s no doubt that our Proteam athletes, Courtney Conlogue, Tia Blanco and Coco Ho, are making waves in their sport. We’re excited to present these surfers in OUT/IN, a four-part video series that shows the duality of three of the WSL’s most talented stars. The first episode zooms in on Courtney and goes behind the scenes of the fierce, pink-powered athlete we know and shows her more artistic and fashion-forward side.
Courtney started surfing at the age of 4 and, as the story goes, she would even sleep in her suit because she was so excited to get in the water early the next day. That little girl would be proud of the woman she is today, especially after how gracefully she overcame a recent foot injury at the beginning of the 2018 season and went on to win a major stop on the World Championship tour.
“Drive and determination run in my blood. You don’t get anywhere without giving 100%,” she says. “There’s elasticity in my lifestyle – surfing is a mix of sport and creativity.”
This first chapter in the four-part OUT/IN video series highlights Courtney’s favorite pastimes out of the water, diving into what she discovered during the three months she recovered from her injury and what drives her to continue chasing her dream of becoming a champion surfer. There’s a special focus on her creative outlets, linking her artistic endeavors on dry land with her abilities to dance on water and paint with her surfboard when she’s in the ocean.
Enjoy part one with Courtney and stay tuned for three more episodes starring Tia Blanco and Coco Ho, and a grand finale with all three surfer hotshots.
