MEO Rip Curl Pro Portugal formerly known as Moche Rip Curl Pro Portugal or Rip Curl Pro Portugal is a professional surfing competition of the WSL World Tour held every year in October at the Supertubos beach in Peniche, Portugal.[1] The event was first founded in 2009 as Rip Curl Search Portugal.[2]

The defending men's champion is the Brazilian surfer Italo Ferreira who won the event both in 2018 and 2019, being the first back-to-back winner ever on the event.[3][4]

The defending women's champion is the American surfer Caroline Marks, the youngest winner ever on the event. Wins her second Championship Tour tournament of her career[5]

In 2016, due to the lack of surfing conditions on Supertubos beach, the WSL organization explored other possibilities in the peninsula and moved temporarily to Point Fabril, between Almagreira and Pico da Mota, where the waves were big and curly providing a good show for the spectators.[6] The Round 5 of the event was done there, then the conditions on Supertubos came back, and the competition returned to its normality.[7]

In August 2018, it was announced by the WSL that Peniche will receive once again the women's competition after nine years without it, which they lost to Cascais. Peniche will host both the men's and women's competition.[8]
