More images from Courtney Conlogue’s ESPN Body 2016 shoot have dropped, featuring the women’s world number one surfer pulling into a Tahiti barrel, nude.
ESPN knows this and have an uncanny ability to present the world’s most famous athletes without a hint of sexualisation. As they’ve featured the likes of our dearest surfers in past issues: Kelly Slater, Coco Ho, Steph Gilmore, they’ve opted for the world number one in the women’s category this time around. There are some words from Courtney below but we figure you’re already looking at the pictures.
To be selected for the body issue is indicative of an ascension into surf – and indeed sport – royalty. And the fact Courtney was selected at such a young age only emphasizes her preeminence in women’s surfing.
