Courtney Conlogue is interesting. She loves to paint, loves to travel and sounds pretty mellos. But she also loves to rip the throat out of any competitor unfortunate enough to be stuck in a heat with her. Courtney's calculated heat strategies have paid off as she's risen through the ranks of the Women's World Tour. "Surfing and creating art are so similar -- there's strategy and adaptation," she told ESPN. "Being able to acclimate to change is so important. You have your A plan, B plan and C plan, but then you have your instinct and sometimes that's the way you have to go when you're surfing and painting."
