Courtney Conlogue (USA) has won the Maui edition of the ASP GoPro Challenge with a submission showing a joyride down a righthander at Honolua Bay.
After a five-year hiatus, the women's World Championship Tour (WCT) returned to the picturesque Hawaiian island for the Target Maui Pro. The stage was set with glassy rights and an idyllic backdrop and Conlogue's winning video captured Honolua Bay in all its glory. The California native will be awarded US$10,000, not to mention cinematic bragging rights.
Conlogue bookends a perfect barrel with big carves for a winning GoPro clip.
The ASP GoPro Challenge asks competing surfers to submit their videos from the contest venue starting two days prior to the contest window, and no later than the conclusion of the competition. Maui's Challenge was the final contest of the 2014 series, following faceoffs at Margaret River, Fiji, Tahiti and Portugal. Judging criteria and previous winners are listed here.
