ASP Women’s Star Events
ARUGAM BAY, Sri Lanka (Sunday, September 4, 2011) The Women’s ASP 6-Star Women’s World Tour final was an all American affair with young Californians Courtney Conlogue (USA) and Lakey Petersen (USA) going for broke in the pumping surf. Both surfers were feeling the nerves, falling on great waves, but it was Conlogue who pulled it together and took the win.
“Lakey (Peterson) and I are great friends and have been surfing against each other for a long time,” Conlogue said. “I was nervous on that last wave, I knew it was a good one and that I’d have to push it to get a good score. Luckily I did some nice turns and won the Final. I love this place, the waves are great and I’m already looking forward to coming back next year.”
Peterson did some great surfing in the final, but was unable to put it all on one wave. She also landed a huge air-reverse just after the siren sounded.
“I was so bummed that I landed that air after the heat,” Peterson said. “But I’m happy with the event, I would have loved to have won, but Courtney surfed great and second is a good result for me.”
