Rip Curl Pro – Ready For Action

Yesterday, I went to check the Supertubos surf spot, where everything is ready for the ASF competition Rip Curl Pro Portugal 2012 to begin.

First I was “living the search” to find the Media Accreditation for the event and pick up my media pass. The nice girls in the the accreditation centrer took care for a nice welcome in a Portuguese hospitality way. Thanks to Rip Curl for a really nice T-shirt and for this special opportunity to be a part of this event.

When arriving in the spot, there was the Rip Curl Pro Groom Search Finals. The conditions in Supertubos were reall hard yesterday as there was strong on-shore wind. But the young guys were bravely taking on the waves. It was truly amazing sight to be seen.

After the finals I went to check out the Media centrer and HQ. It’s a really nice view from the Media center to all  the competitors area and the line-up. I’ve said hello to the Major of Peniche and Mick Fanning as we passed by each other. A really nice feeling to be here indeed.

And it makes me wonder . . . who is going to be in the finals of the event in this year?

What’s your bet?
