The surf world is approaching Portugal and we are looking for those who really understand and will pass on the tips for those who want to know the amazing beaches of the region. No one better to give these tips than Head Coach Felippe Bonela Dal Piero who has been living in the region for years.
Supertubos is one of Portugal’s best known peaks with its famous waves and an extensive strip of sand. For more experienced surfers, this wave is known to be part of the World Surf League Championship Tour. This place is famous in the small fishing village of Peniche, Portugal earned its nickname for decades pleasing surfers from around the world before being revealed to the masses during the 2010 Rip Curl Search event. The waves were so good during the 2009 event that WSL and top sponsor Rip Curl decided to make Peniche a permanent stop every October on the dream tour. When we talk about Supertubes, epic surf sessions are always coming to mind, full of long, powerful sand-bottomed cylinders. However, Supertubos is not an easy wave to master. The strong storms that plague the North Atlantic, along with unique bathymetry, elements like these together make Supertubes one of the best beach breaks in the world.
