Surfers Battled It In Challenging Conditions At The Rumblefish Surf Series In Portugal

The Rumblefish surf series went down for the first time on the beaches of Costa Da Caparica in Portugal during Easter (March 28-29).

The event was the 3rd European stop of Volcom’s Totally Crustaceous Tour and happened right after a Pro Junior contest so the Junior division (16 & under) was packed. The conditions on Monday were unruly so the contest was called off, forcing organizer to run a double bank on the Tuesday.
An international field of surfers from Portugal, Spain, Canary Islands and France battled it all day on the waves on offer: Juniors and Pro Am were surfing on podium one with a fun left reform on the inside and an occasional righthander, while Groms, Girls and Squids surfed a right reform on podium two that was doubling up at times with a good section to hit.
Check out the photos below for a better taste of all the action that went down.
The Mulletfish in Hossegor (23-24 April) will be the last European TCT event of the season and will decide all other qualified surfers for Trestles!
See you in Hossegor!
