Courtney Conlogue in “Courtney On Board” – A Film by Guigo Foggiatto Presented by Carver Skateboards

Courtney On Board from Carver Skateboards on Vimeo.

 
From hitting the gym to wrapping turns on her Carver Skateboards model to transferring all her hard work to the water, Courtney On Board has something special for every fan of Courtney Conlogue. A highlight for us is how seamlessly Courtney transfers her concrete carves to the same type of turns in the surf.
"Once you get to a certain point, you need to inspire yourself somehow ...to be the best you and to not follow others, but to create yourself."
Film Description
Courtney had been training on a Carver for several years before we sponsored her, so by the time we met about designing her model, she had plenty of ideas, from the shape and length to the graphic. Short and wide was her mantra, so she can practice maneuvers with great control and precision proportionate to her size. This premium skate features an eco-certified Walnut veneer bottom.

Courtney Conlogue in Billabong Women's Salt Water Sirens series

Courtney Conlogue in Billabong Women’s “Salt Water Sirens” Series

 
I've had the honor and privilege of photographing Courtney Conlogue at various times over the past eight years or so and the single greatest thing I've personally learned from her is the importance of discipline. From watching her approach to amateur contests as a young surfer to school to training to nutrition to the injuries and other obstacles she's faced and overcome on the World Tour--she has always been on top of things in a way that screams champion, not just in sport but in life in general.
"The discipline aspect is so natural for me now because it's been bred into every aspect of my life--from doing chores, to going to school, to doing my homework, to having a routine in the morning before I went to school ...trying to work on my pop-ups in surfing when I was a little grom to get my pop-ups faster and other little things like that just to create a habit."
In this episode of Billabong Women's "Salt Water Sirens" series, Courtney goes on to speak about her childhood, the importance of her family, and her general approach to life.
"I love to laugh and I love to explore. I love to just be. I'm not someone who tries to overly plan something. I do plan for the future, but I don't stress on it. I try to follow my instincts with whatever I do and back myself all the way."
The video touches on those excruciating moments at Honolua Bay last season when the World Title slipped away, but far from being permanently devastated by it, Courtney took a few days to deal with the situation, put it behind her, and got back to work for the year ahead.
This short film is amazing and for those who care to listen to Courtney's words, there are lessons here that could apply to any of us--parents, kids, athletes, and coaches. This being a surfing site, I'd be remiss if I didn't mention her surfing and like always, Courtney delivers with true power and creativity. Congratulations to Courtney, her family, Billabong, Collective Digital Cinema, and everyone else who has a hand in the "Salt Water Sirens" series. Really solid effort by everyone involved. Five out of five stars!!
 
Film Description
Every athlete will face that moment before the action begins. It’s filled with quiet determination, sharp focus, the sound of blood pounding in her ears. It’s the culmination of years of training, resilience, defeat and success, the moment that defines a champion.
For the second installment of Billabong’s Salt Water Sirens series we take an intimate look into the mindset of Courtney Conlogue, who suffered a brutal surfing injury that forced her to the sidelines as she watched her world title hopes slip out of reach. After a year of mental and physical healing, Courtney fought her way back to her strongest year ever, propelled by three World Tour wins which landed her at the #2 spot in the world. Like a phoenix rising from the ashes, can her unparalleled dedication to her sport take her from the peripherals of the world’s eye to the focus: the Women’s World Title?
From the experiences that shaped her to the drive that energizes her through the dynamic landscape of competitive surfing, Salt Water Sirens is a compelling look into the journey that has transformed Courtney from an athlete to an icon.

Karina Petroni, Windward, a Caribbean surf adventure film by Carl Rosen

Windward – Karina Petroni in a Film by Carl Rosen

Windward from Carl Rosen on Vimeo.  
All of our favorite surf videos make us want to jump from our chairs and book a flight somewhere. While we'd be trudging off to the nearest international airport, Karina Petroni's travel situation is a lot more romantic. When the mood strikes, a board is taken down from the rafters and loaded onto a plane piloted by her husband, David. Together, the two surfers travel throughout the Caribbean in search of crystal clear water and fun waves. We watched this clip over and over with equal measures of stoke and envy. Love this video!
Filmmaker's Description When adventure calls, someone must answer. Here's professional traveler, surfer and adventurer, Karina Petroni, answering the call by traversing to remote parts of the Caribbean, with her husband and pilot David, with the hopes of finding beauty in unknown places.

Courtney Conlogue in Emerald Odyssey, a surf film by Dillon Chang

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.

Women's Surf Movies on Jettygirl Online Surf Magazine One of my favorite Jettygirl days was the one I spent with surfer/shaper/musician, Ashley Lloyd Thompson, at her home in Santa Cruz, California. Watching the ultra-smooth surfing styles of Ashley and her husband, Alex, was a refreshing change of pace. If filming the two of them drawing clean lines in the water wasn't reward enough, I was blessed even more with a home-grown salad and an impromptu live music performance after the session. It was an epic day through and through! Thank you for stopping by for another installment of Single Wave Thursday. As always, thank you for your support of Jettygirl.
