Moche Rip Curl Pro Portugal: 9-20 October 2013


After last year's incredible display of barrel riding at Supertubos, the world's greatest surfers will once again return to the mythical shores of Peniche.
The Moche Rip Curl Pro, the 9th event of ten on the ASP World Championship Tour, will run from 9-20 October at the most hollow beach break in Europe.

Supertubos is a powerful wave that is fuelled by the long and deep swells coming from the North Atlantic, which can reach up to 4 to 5 meters in height. Because the throating barrels here look so similar to Hawaii's Banzai Pipeline, many surfers have nicknamed this wave "The European Pipe."
While the event is mobile around the town of Peniche, this year we also have the option of running in Cascais. If the swell is out of control, the bright lights of Lisbon city may be calling as we search for the most prime conditions for the world's best surfers.

If you haven't been to Peniche, Portugal then put it on your travel to do list. Or, to see what we are on about, join us this October for the live broadcast. Non-stop action as the world's best surfers pull into one of the world's best beach breaks.
