MEO Rip Curl Pro Portugal is the world’s top professional surfing competition held every October in Peniche. It is featuring leading surfers of the world and is included within the WSL—World Surf League Tour. The best surf beaches are selected to host this adrenaline-boosting event. Carcavelos, Guincho, and Supertubos are famous for excellent Atlantic swells and large, tubular-shaped waves.

MEO Rip Curl Pro Portugal was founded in 2009 and was held at various locations. However, Supertubos in Peniche has become its most iconic spot. If you are a surfer, the wave at Supertubos is a must-do. Nazare is also known for its huge waves. When you are done watching surfers, enjoy the advantages that Coastal Portugal has to offer: fresh sardines and other seafood, excellent wine, and beautiful nature.
