    Rip Curl Pro Portugal

    Posted over 2 years ago by Andrew De Lara

    The place is called Supertubos. A fully proper name for a place where Oakley Star Surf Team Ripper Adriano de Souza would find glory in five-to-seven foot barrels en route to victory at the Rip Curl Pro Portugal in Peniche. The Brazilian took out Kelly Slater before a packed beach at one of the premiere beach breaks on the Planet. Coming out the gates on fire in the Final – pitted against the legendary Slater – Adriano threw down for an impressive 9-point ride, getting shacked in a long, deep barrel.
