Peniche surf & climb sessions

Taking advantage of the big swell hitting the Portuguese coast on Sunday (September 24th) we head to Peniche for a weekend escape!

As expected, Supertubos was charging and I managed to get some shoots of the pros from the beach!!

Besides great Surf, Peniche also offer some cool climbing options, particularly a big sandstone boulder at Carreiro de Joanes beach!
