Emerald Odyssey, a Short Surf Film by Dillon Chang, Starring Courtney Conlogue in Ireland

Emerald Odyssey from Dillon Chang on Vimeo.

 
Back in 2008 we asked Courtney Conlogue where she would go if she could take a board with her on a time machine. She responded that she would travel to "a time when life was slower and there was less technology. I would still want the best surfing equipment around. I'd go to Indonesia when no one was out because I want to be able to enjoy some incredible waves without a crowd. I want to relax and pick and choose the best waves with no hassling around me." While her Emerald Odyssey took her to Ireland instead of Indonesia, the trip definitely checked the rest of the boxes she spoke about seven years ago. It's a pleasure to watch Courtney surf Ireland's long lefts and it's easy to see how much she enjoys the uncrowded power of the Emerald Isle's rugged coastline.
Filmmaker's Description
After physical or emotional trauma, there is a period of reflection. A time where we disbelieve every ideal we once held close and reevaluate our anchors. Emerald Odyssey is a story about rediscovering those foundations. A story about going against the normalcy's and venturing to an unorthodox destination in search of waves and oneself.

There are only seventeen surfers on the prestigious ASP Women's World Tour and lucky for us, world ranked #4, Courtney Conlogue, lives only an hour up the road from the Jettygirl office. While we don't get up to Orange County all that much, Courtney enjoys surfing some of our local breaks as is the case in the video below. On a morning that was actually a bit onshore and bumpy, Courtney consistently picked out the glassier gems where she proceeded to throw multiple hooks down the line. On this particular wave, as whitewater explodes on the outermost jetty, Courtney rifles off a couple of clean snaps before winding up for a massive fan off the closeout. If you're like us and enjoy taking notes on how to improve your own surfing, one of the most important keys to Courtney's world class top turns is her commitment to the rail on her bottom turns. Leaning around sections will get you down the line but to throw eight feet of spray, it requires the type of leverage that results from deep, powerful arcs off the bottom. Try it next time you paddle out and see the difference a solid bottom turn will make. You may not be headed to the World Tour, but making it rain on your friends is pretty fun too! Thank you for the lessons, Courtney!

Our "massive" travel budget sometimes allows us to venture far from our local spots ...in this case, three dollars of gas and a short bike ride got me in front of one of my favorite surfers, Justine Dupont. Justine had been in Oceanside competing in the Supergirl Pro and although we were in contact throughout, we never connected on a shoot until this quick morning session as she and Pauline Ado were heading to the airport for the flight home to France. For those of you who may not know Justine, she's definitely one of the most talented surfers I've ever had the opportunity to meet. Not only can she throw shortboard airs and rotations, she's also a world class longboarder (ranked #3 on the ASP), and she charges truly massive waves as you can see here at Belharra, France and at this gnarly, wedging right at Aileens in Ireland. I can't wait until she returns to California next summer, but in the meantime, here's Justine in our latest Single Wave Thursday. One ride, no music, just surfing.
