Our second to last stop on the Championship Tour brings us the hollow and punchy beach-breaks in Peniche, Portugal. The Peniche Peninsula is open to every swell direction the Atlantic has to offer meaning this location consistently delivers near-perfect surf. As the race for the World Title comes to an end, WSL surfers will hold nothing back in this perfect surf to earn their spot in surfing history. This destination on The Surf Tour gives campers an inside look at the Tour’s most progressive contest as well as all-inclusive, guided access to WSL parties and events, unrivaled nightlife in Cascais, and above all, world-class surf. See how you can live the Moche Rip Curl Pro Portugal below.
The waiting period for the Moche Rip Curl Pro Portugal is October 20th - 31st, 2017. Our package will start with pick-up on friday, October 20nd and run through tuesday, October 31th. These dates ensure that The Surf Tour campers see the best in contest action, nightlife, and are able to book more reasonable airfare.
Simply fly into Lisbon Portela International Airport (LIS) and we will take care of the rest. Your guide will meet you at the airport at the scheduled pick-up time and provide transportation to the event a half-hour away. Your guide will cater the experience to your style, driving to all contest events, after-parties and group surfs. While it is not necessary, participants are encouraged to look into renting their own car for use during personal time.
Your experience would not be complete unless you truly lived like a pro. Our team has secured exquisite property right among other team housing and minutes from a handful of breaks. You will be living among the biggest names in the sport and just a stones throw from world-class surf.

In addition to breakfast and dinner, your guide will provide recommendations for local chow. Vegan, vegetarian, and special diet options are available upon request.
Detailed contest itineraries are posted within two weeks of the start of the waiting period. As one of the newer locations on the Championship Tour, the Moche Rip Curl Pro Portugal attracts the industries biggest sponsors meaning there will be no shortage of on-land events. You can expect to live everything from parties and pro-signings to expression sessions and celebrity heats. Since the rebranding of the ASP earlier this year, now the World Surf League (WSL), we are anticipating colossal growth in partnerships and publicity meaning you will be immersed in a much more vibrant atmosphere than in previous years.
After your daily fix of heavy surf and contest events, your life on the tour will continue at local pubs and parties in and around Cascais and Lisbon. This is certainly one of the wilder and more culturally-rich stops for The Surf Tour and the WSL, definitely not one to be missed. Surf, beautiful people, and parties 24/7 make Portugal our most tempting destination yet. Your local guide has the area dialed and will be sure to make you feel the same.
