Proving once again that she is a fighter, Courtney Conlogue battled back in a big way during her Semifinal heat against Tyler Wright. With under 10 minutes to go in the heat, Conlogue hadn't ridden a wave and was down by 14 points. Making matters worse, she'd surrendered priority by paddling for a wave and missing it. But she finally got an opportunity, and ripped a glassy righthander with about 9:45 on the clock. The damage she did earned her a huge 9.00. In the closing minutes of the heat she followed with a 9.33, giving her another comeback win and a trip to her second-straight Final at Bells Beach.
