Supertubos was the main reason why Rip Curl and the ASP decided to include Peniche in the 2009 World Championship Tour. The event was the Rip Curl Pro Search 2009 and the result of the nearly two weeks the tour spent in Peniche was impressive for all involved, ASP, professional surfers, media, fans and both local and national authorities.

This event was in fact the turning point on a deserved presence of Peniche and Portugal in the WCT. Proven beyond any doubt is the incredible consistency and variety of surf options in this magic Peninsula of Peniche; there was tow in surf, beautiful maneuverable beach breaks and last but not least a show of what Supertubos can deliver with the unforgettable October 27th, a day that will remain in our memories as one of the best surf shows we’ve ever witnessed.
