2016 Rip Curl Pro Portugal, Peniche

Supertubos is a pumping sandbar that offers left and right barrels, plus great launch sections when the size stays in check.

In 2009, Rip Curl’s Search event series took the world's best surfers to the barrels of Supertubes, and we've been going back ever since! The town of Peniche has stacks of waves and the season's biggest storm seems to detonate on the Portuguese coastline during the event waiting period each year. Barrels range from 2-to-12 feet (1-to-4 metres) high.

Location: Peniche, Portugal
Trials: TBC
Main event: 18 - 29 October, 2016
