Supertubos will host the world’s best surfers for Day 1 of the Rip Curl Pro Portugal.
SUPERTUBOS, Peniche/Portugal (Wednesday, October 9, 2013) – Round 1 of the Rip Curl Pro Portugal presented by Moche has been called on this morning, commencing at 8am (fog permitting) in clean 3-5Ft waves at Supertubos.
Event 9 of 10 on the 2013 ASP World Championship Tour (WCT), the Rip Curl Pro Portugal has the potential of crowning this year’s ASP World Champion as well as playing a vital role in the requalification campaigns for the world’s best surfers.
“We have good waves on offer this morning and we’ll be commencing competition shortly,” Rich Porta, ASP International Head Judge, said. “Conditions and swell are meant to maintain throughout the day so we’ve called Round 1 on and have put Round 2 on standby as well for a possible start this afternoon. Good luck to all our competitors today.”
