When we came down to Peniche we realised that the season was not over at all.
While we were going through Galicia and North Portugal we didn’t meet too many other travellers, the surf was mostly uncrowded and the locals chilled out. This all changed when we arrived in Peniche!
From 9th to 20th October the Rip Curl Pro took place at Supertubos, Peniche´s most well known beach break. The fact that it was still warm, the waves good and the vast number of Surfcamps made it feel like returning to high season again.
Most of the time we stayed north of Peniche as the conditions for the contest at Supertubos were not that easy. We watched the Pros surfing at the more protected beaches of Ferrel.
