- ABOUT THE SPOT
Surfing in Supertubos, Peniche, Lisbon and Coast Portugal
One of the most popular beaches in Peniche is Supertubos. The beach is awesome and it is suitable only for the insane surfers, who want to prove something, either to themselves or to others.
The place is easily approachable, you need to take a car though. You might hear this beach called Super, as it is simply super!! Waves are totally epic and break frequently, providing the necessary conditions to pros or kamikaze, who dare to surf on these waves.
The spot offers the most powerful waves in Portugal, which can take your board for breakfast! However, it is not recommended in summer, because the waves stink then and there are many bodyboarders.
The bottom is sandy, the wave type is sand-bar and the right and left wave direction rules! On normal and good days, the waves reach a length of 50 to 150 m/164 to 492 ft. The best days to surf in this spot are when the wind blows from the north or northwest and the swell comes from the northwest, west or southwest. The swell starts working at 1 – 1.5 m/3 – 5 ft and holds up to 3+ m/10+ ft.
The spot works perfectly on high and mid tides and the best tide movement is rising and falling tides. During the week, you meet only few surfers, but at weekends, the beach is very crowded not only with surfers, but also bodyboarders. In a few words Supertubos rocks!!!
