Like the chin of an amateur boxer, the Portuguese coastline sits exposed to North Atlantic swells, just waiting to get hit — and the Atlantic knows how to pack a punch. The third competition of the 2022 CT season will be held at Supertubos, a powerful beach break just south of the fishing-turned-surfing town of Peniche (about an hour and fifteen minutes from Lisbon). Though fickle and tide sensitive, this shifty break is a favorite among competitors who are tube savvy or unafraid of a dumpy ramp. And if this non-stop run of swell in the North Atlantic continues — as it tends to do this time of year — we’ll be in for an incredible show. The 2022 Meo Pro Portugal runs from March 3 to 13, and we're ready for action!
