Courtney Conlogue Paddled 32 miles for Charity

Professional surfer Courtney Conlogue is used to spending copious amounts of time in the ocean, but last Saturday was something entirely different for her. Starting from the Catalina Channel, Conlogue got in the water and began paddling until she hit the sand of Huntington beach seven hours and 45 minutes later. Conlogue originally came up with the idea for the 32-mile challenge during her recovery from a brain injury. She hoped that the grueling paddle would not only push her limits but also
