My Beach Essentials: Courtney Conlogue

The pro surfer doesn’t skimp on sun protection or fashion.

Courtney Conlogue calls the beach her workplace, and it’s where she feels most at home. “When you’re brought up surfing and you spend so much time in the water, you get really comfortable with it and learn to understand the ocean’s rhythm and the way it moves,” says Conlogue, a Santa Ana, California native.

The two-time World Title runner-up surfs in places like Australia, South Africa, and Cuba, but there’s nothing quite like her hometown favorites. Among her go-to spots: Huntington Beach. That’s exactly where she competed in and won the Vans US Open of Surfing in August. (Learn how she trains for the waves here.)

Ahead of the action, Conlogue spoke with Furthermore about what she packs in her bag for a day on the water.
