New champion crowned in Supergirl Pro

OCEANSIDE — Three days of surfing competition wrapped up on Sunday with a new champion being crowned in the Paul Mitchell Supergirl Pro.

Tatiana Weston-Webb, the No. 7-ranked surfer in the World Surf League, took this year’s honors beating out Courtney Conlogue.

Conlogue moved through her early rounds convincingly, scoring a 9.30 on her opening wave on Saturday.

Conlogue beat out Sage Erickson in the round of 16 heat to move on to the finals and compete against Weston-Webb.

Erickson, who won last year’s competition, survived a thrilling heat on Saturday after catching a wave in the final seconds, earning her a chance to move on to the round of 16 on Sunday.

The three-day surf event, hosted at the Oceanside Pier, is the largest women’s surf contest in the world, complete with a Festival Village featuring live music, skateboarding demonstrations and vendors.
