When we came down to Peniche we realized that the season was not over at all. While travelling Galicia and noth Portugal before we did not meet other travelers pretty often. The surf was mostly uncrowded and the locals chilled out. This changed when coming to Peniche!
From 9th to 20th October the Rip Curl Pro took place at Supertubos, Peniche´s most well known beach break. But not only that but also the fact that it was still warm, the waves good and the number of surfcamps high made it feel like returning to high season again.
Most of the time we stayed north of Peniche and as the conditions for the contest at Supertubos were not that easy you could watch the Pros surfing at the more protected beaches of Ferrel. The guy in green is Filipe Toledo.
