Portugal: The Home of European Surfing
Surfing in Portugal is a unique experience. No other coast offers such a high number of surf spots within such a short distance.
With a wealth of exceptional points and reefs along the coastline, the Moche Rip Curl Pro may be surfed at a variety of locations.
Supertubos, known as the "European Pipeline," is the most popular wave in the region. Each fall the sleepy village of Peniche swells with thousands of surf fans who pack the beaches to witness the best surfers in the world perform in the flawless barrels of Supertubos.
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.
This year's Moche Rip Curl Pro Portugal from 9-20 October will again be timed perfectly to coincide with the start of the winter swells.
