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.

Follow Pauline Ado, Episode 5, Biarritz - Presented by Rip Curl After 4 months on the road, Pauline Ado was finally back at home for the 6th event of the ASP Women Tour. With her 9th place at the ASP ranking and only 10 girls keeping their spot on the tour, this event was a unique opportunity to secure her qualification for next season. Despite this real stressful situation, Pauline managed to get the best result of her young career on a WT event with an amazing 3rd place which almost assures her to be part of the WT in 2012. After defeating Lee-Ann Curren (FRA) in Round4 and Silvana Lima (BRA) in quarter-finals, Pauline couldn't stop Carissa Moore (HAW) on her way to her first ASP World Title. Surrounded by her family, her friends and her coaches, Pauline is about to be the first European women to be qualified on the WT two years in a row. A performance which is not official yet but Pauline's never been so close to her main objective. If one of those 2 scenarios happens in Huntington, Pauline Ado will be qualified for the WT 2012: • Pauline makes it through Round 3 • Laura Enever (AUS) and Paige Hareb (NZL) don't get qualified for the final Enjoy her performance on the 5th episode of "Follow Pauline" and see you in Huntington next month!
