With the Swatch watches now officially set forward to summer time, spring in the air and the waters around south-west France warming with every coming swell, thoughts turn towards the most exciting surf event of the European summer season – The Swatch Girls Pro France 2013.
Defending event champion, Swatch Proteam rider and current ASP World number 3 Courtney Conlogue, who just notched up another huge career win in New Zealand, is just one of many top international talents raring to tackle the famous French beachbreaks this August.
“I put in a lot of hard work during the off season and I’m stoked to have it paying off with a win in New Zealand. I’ve felt like I’ve been surfing well and am building momentum all the time. Of course the ratings are important but we also just want to surf great waves, and coming to Hossegor for the Swatch event is just another chance for us to show our surfing in world class waves.”
