ASP World No.1 Courtney Conlogue, 19, (USA) was crowned champion of the SWATCH GIRLS PRO FRANCE at Les Bourdaines, Seignosse, France on Saturday afternoon after a string of commanding performances in 3ft (head high) surf at the famous French beachbreak. Surfing with all the confidence of a surfer already with two major tour victories under her belt this year, Conlogue posted a series of excellent scores including a perfect 10 in her quarterfinal for three lethal backside hits, before edging past the dangerous Sage Erickson, 21, (USA) in the semis. That set up a relatively one-sided final with Paige Hareb, 21 (NZL) held in tricky strong onshore conditions favouring the righthanders. The American opened up with an 8.83, and backed up with a 7.0 to secure her maiden tour win in Europe. "It feels amazing to come out with a win here, I've always loved coming to France and I had my sights set on taking out a win this year," said Conlogue. "The waves were really fun this morning when it was glassy and I felt like I got into a good rhythm. I had some tough heats with girls like Alessa (Quizon) and Sage surfing super well, and I managed to snag a couple of decent rights in the final. The waves were really good this morning, but even with the onshores it the final there were still fun ones out there." Conlogue picks up $US8000 and 3500 points for her efforts.
The SWATCH GIRLS PRO FRANCE at Les Bourdaines, Seignosse, France ended with excellent surfs from the girls and crowning Courtney Conlogue as the Champion of the event and Bianca Buitendag as 3 Pro Junior winner. The video wraps up the whole four day event and also shows footage of the preparation of the girls.

On Friday was a lay day at the SWATCH GIRLS PRO FRANCE 2012... but what a lay day it was! Ne'er content to loll about lamenting the lack of surf, captains of swell times at event HQ put on an afternoon of rambunctious water-based fun involving outrigger canoes, paddleboards, aqua fitness, speed and agility. As a relatively rare all day offshore wind ruffled a miniscule groundswell's shimmering ultramarine crests, nine 4 (wo)man teams battled it out for supremacy around two offshore buoys. In...
