- ABOUT THE SPOT
Kiteboarding / Kitesurfing in Supertubos, Peniche, Lisbon and Coast Portugal
If you like a strong cocktail of adrenaline, then you should try kite-boarding. It is a famous extreme sport that combines gymnastics, windsurfing, surfing, wake-boarding and paragliding. To join this sport you need good and powerful waves and a long sandy beach. Peniche’s beach is the medicine to your adrenaline addiction.
Peniche has beautiful long windy beaches and can provide the right conditions for kite-boarding. Supertubos is a popular wave in the area and well known as the “European pipeline”, because it’s a really strong and fast one.
The breaks are staring in 3 distinctly different directions making it the best destination for kite-surfing fans. In summer, the waves are with swell size between 4-6.5 ft (1.3-2 m) most of the time and the wind blows onshore at 85%. In autumn, winter and spring the waves are with swell size between 6.5-10 ft (2-3 m) and the wind blows onshore at 63%, 58% and 73% respectively.
There are kite-boarding schools on the spot, so don’t worry for your level of experience. In Peniche, there are really good seafood restaurants and lots of accommodation options.
