The Rip Curl Pro Portugal’s waiting period begins today, and though the comp is off you can be sure that most every surfer in town is getting waves somewhere between Nazare and Carcavelos. 

Portugal is without a doubt one of the most interesting and underrated surf zones in the world. There are few places that rival its variety, while so many of those wave’s close proximity to Lisbon’s insanely indulgent culture makes it a damned fine destination for a surfer looking for more than surf camp food and the ame afternoon games of chess. 

This week, our friends in Torquay at Rip Curl are giving away an “Ultimate Surf Trip” to Portugal. Entering is easy, and throwing one’s name into a hat never hurts. Here’s the details, from Rippie’s ever-charming Mimi LaMontage:

Been dreaming of your next holiday? Keen on planning an overseas surf trip, but not quite sure where you’re headed? Look no further, because we’re giving you the chance to win the ultimate surf trip to Portugal.

The stunning coastline of Portugal plays host to some of the best waves in the world –from heaving barrels to playful beach breaks –and with its curving cliffsides and unique land formations, you’ll never be short of finding an offshore, empty lineup.

Between the perfect waves, the magnificent cliffs and beaches so beautiful they look like they’re out of a storybook, it doesn’t get much better. Add in world-class food and some of the friendliest locals you’ll find, and there’s nowhere we’d rather be.

So, what do you get if you’re the lucky winner of the Ultimate Surf Trip to Portugal? You will score…

–A $2000 flight voucher

–5 nights of accommodation at the MH, Atlantico, Peniche for up to two people.

–$1000 gift pack of Rip Curl product

While you’re staying in Peniche, Portugal, you’ll be just over an hour’s drive to the thriving metropolis of Lisboa. You’ll be in the middle of one of the most wave-rich peninsulas on the entire Portuguese coastline. And you’ll be right where all the action goes down at the Rip Curl Pro each year.

So, do YOU want to win the Ultimate Surf Trip to Portugal? Do YOU want to holiday where the pros go? Surf some of the best waves in the country? And, have the opportunity to experience one of the most unique surfing towns in Portugal?
