WELCOME TO CAIXA GERAL DE DEPOSITOS PENICHE PRO OCTOBEr, 05-07 2012 STOP V of LIGA MEO PRO SURF photo by Jorge Matreno


O CAMINHO PARA PENICHE E INESQUECIVEL!

Arrancar de noite irá garantir-te alguns dos nascer-do-sol mais alucinantes pois o rei astro rompe o dia pelo meio de uma densa nebelina. Mas o que torna este caminho mais inesquecível é o facto de ires o caminho todo com “borboletas” no estomâgo principalmente se vais para Supertubos, o mundialmente famoso beachbreak português. Foi esta praia que recebeu a última etapa da Liga Meo Pro Surf (LMPS). Apesar do campeão já estar definido, os tubos de Supertubos são razão suficiente para a obrigatória emoção de um desfecho de ano competitivo perfeito! Parece que o primeiro dia da LMPS de 2012 estava destinado a ser um dia quase sem ondas. Aconteceu no TVI Cascais Pro, a segunda etapa do ano, e na penúltima, o Meo Figueira Pro, e, infelizmente, iria acontecer em Supertubos, no Caixa Geral de Depósitos Peniche Pro! Mas, no segundo dia, o swell entrou e, tal como este não parou de bombar ondas perfeitas, também Nicolau Von Rupp não parou até garantir a sua primeira vitória na LMPS de 2012!

THE FOG WAS HIDDING A BAD REALITY... photo by Jorge Matreno

the road to supertubos is unforgetable!

Hitting the road before dawn will ensure that you will watch some of the most mind boggling sunrises you will ever see, hidden between the mist. But what make the journey even more enjoyable is the fact that you’ll have butterflies in your stomach all the way, specially if you are on your way to the world renowned beach break of Supertubos. Supertubos was the spot for the last event of the tour and although a national champion was already decided, the fact that the contest was on that spot made for a perfect finish of the Meo Pro Surf League. The first day of most events seemed destined not to have a lot of waves. It happened at the TVI Cascais Pro, the second stop of the league, and it would happen again at the Meo Figueira Pro and in Peniche for the Caixa Geral de Depósitos Peniche Pro! But the second day had some swell and it didn’t stop until the end, when Nicolau Von Rupp secured his first win of the year!

SUPERTUBOS WAS ALMOST SUPER FLAT... ALMOST! O primeiro

dia de prova teve algumas das condições mais difíceis entre todas as etapas mas para Ruben Gonzalez foi só mais um dia tranquilo no escritório! || The first day of the event had some of the hardest conditions of the whole tour. But to Ruben Gonzalez it was just another day at the office!

TONGUE

After a win, Ruben Gonzalez loves to show his . No, he doesn’t has Maori roots, it’s just his thing. Gonzalez also loves to take a lot of his quiver to Supertubos but for sure he didn’t expected to have to use his custom made board for really small waves. photo by onfiresurfmag.com

PRESSURE

Any surfer will release the after winning a heat in one foot waves. Nuno Silva, Peniche local, letting the steam go out, while a couple enjoy a walk with no pressure at all! photo by Jorge Matreno

WISH

“Super barrels? I !!! Super small waves instead but round 1 is done and I’ve won my heat. Yes, it’s over for today my darling!”, João Guerra phone update already with one hand in the relax zone! His entire body followed the hand after he hang up! photo by onfiresurfmag.com

END of day 1...


...and, hopefully, the small waves jinx! photo by Jorge Matreno


When the sun came up for day 2...


...Supertubos was

PUMPING . And so it did until the end! photo by Jorge Matreno


SUPERSTITIOUS

Nicolau Von Rupp’s movements were on: “if I can touch my foot toes I can do anything, like winning this!” photo by Jorge Matreno


NO SUPERSTITIOn INVOLVED HERE! Na etapa anterior o backside de Nicolau Von Rupp garantiu-

lhe a maior parte das notas altas. Nos Super teve de ir buscar essas notas às esquerdas com tubos profundos como este. || In the previous event Nicolau Von Rupp “found” most of his big scores on the lefts. But at Peniche he had to chase his high scores in lefthand tubes like this. photo by Jorge Matreno


A PEEK IN THE FINAL DAY! Nos quartos de final Filipe Jervis fez uma das grandes disputas do campeonato com Eduardo Fernandes por um lugar na fase seguinte. Manobras como esta ajudaram a chegar aos heats man-on-man. || In the quarter finals Filipe Jervis had a very close heat against Eduardo Fernandes but moves like this gave him the advantage.

THE UNDERDOG! André Faria foi ao longo do ano uma das grandes revelações. Quando começar a transformar o seu surf progressivo em pontuações altas vai ser muito perigoso. || André Faria was one of the most impressive up and coming surfers at the league and when he starts turning his airs into big scores he will be really dangerous to his fellow competitors. photos by Jorge Matreno


WHO’s WHO? “Look, your twin brother

is going mad!!! Is he you or are you him?”, Miguel Mouzinho asked to the Guichard brother standing by him. photo by onfiresurfmag.com

028


THIS IS JOACKIM! Ter os irmãos Guichard na Liga Meo Pro Surf é sempre bom, este snap potente

de Joackim Guichard mostra porquê! || Having the Guichard bros at the league is always a treat, this powerful snap by Joackim Guichard shows why! photo by Jorge Matreno


BARRELS OFF, AIR MOVES ON! A distância e ângulo não fazem justiça a este aéreo reverse que Zé Ferreira

completou, mas foi uma das melhores manobras de toda a prova. || The distance and angle doesn’t do justice to this big air reverse by Zé Ferreira, but it was one of the best moves of the whole contest. photos by Jorge Matreno

YOUNG GUN!

O nortenho Tomás Ferreira é um dos mais impressionantes surfistas em ascensão do circuito e enquadrou-se bem nas ondas dos Supertubos. || Tomás Ferreira, from Porto, is easily one of the most impressive up and coming surfers in Portugal right now. photo by Jorge Matreno

Pro Surf. Tudo mudou em Peniche, pois quando está com a cabeça no sítio é difícil pará-lo! || 2012 was about to become one of the worst years ever at the league for João Guedes. But in Peniche he turned it all around showing every one how good he is when his head is in the right place. photo by Jorge Matreno


EX-WCT SURFER IN THE HOUSE! Marlon Lipke sur-

fou de tal forma que deixou muitos a comentar que uma vaga no WCT será novamente sua se quiser. As meias finais iludiram-no e, pela terceira vez consecutiva, acabou em 3º lugar. || Marlon Lipke surfed with so much power that he left many wondering why he doesn’t have a spot on the World Tour. But at the league the semis got the better of him three times in a row, finishing again equal third. photos by Jorge Matreno


VENI, VIDI (NOT) VICI... Gony Zubizarreta (d) chegou à praia com

Miguel “Marcus Antonius” Mouzinho (e). Gony viu as ondas perfeitas, mas, infelizmente, teve um heat “Brutus”, perdendo sem vencer a última etapa da Liga Meo Pro Surf. || Gony Zubizarreta (r) arrived with Miguel “Marcus Antonius” Mouzinho (l). He saw the perfect Supertubos waves but unfortunatly he got a “Brutus” heat, losing without conquering the Caixa Geral de Depósitos Peniche Pro champion title! photos by Jorge Matreno

SOUTH POWER... Um grande resultado que o coloque entre os 16 melhores de Portugal continua a

iludir Francisco Canelas. Enquanto isso não acontece ele continua a proporcionar bons momentos. || The big result that would get Francisco Canelas into the top 16 hasn’t come yet but he keeps impressing the hell out of everyone with his big moves.

photo by Jorge Matreno


WINNER FACE... Francisco Canelas has the funniest

winner faces you’ll ever see! photo by onfiresurfmag.com

RUBEN ALWAYS GOES! Grandes aéreos em ondas pequenas, grandes drops em ondas maiores,

Ruben Gonzalez não tem falhas no seu repertório. || Big air on small waves, big drops on bigger waves, Ruben Gonzalez doesn’t have any flaws in his act! photo by Jorge Matreno


GUN TIME! Ruben Gonzalez took

the gun out, and caught the biggest wave of the contest...

“WE SAW IT� ...and these ladies

saw and got all jumpy and excited!

TRUE HEART! No one shows more of his true heart in Liga Meo Pro

Surf than Alexandre Ferreira. If it’s an important heat and he wins he jumps, if he looses he... well you can see it here! photos by onfiresurfmag.com

“WHERE DID I GO WRONG?” | TAKE 1... for sure not João Kopke

favourite song but for sure a question in his mind!


“WHERE DID I GO WRONG?” | TAKE 2... ask Supertubos local, Nuno Silva. “I really don´t know”, replys Francisco Rodrigues, ANS president. photos by onfiresurfmag.com


What do you see? Perfect Supertubos? Yeah, but look closer...

054

one hand only” joke! We didn´t laugh (much) but they did!


FOG FUN | TAKE 3 But we laughed like crazy mad men when we saw Francisco Alves wearing

this girlie hat! This kid is with no doubt the best entertainer during an on hold situation!

055


FOG FUN | TAKE 4 | THE LIE We had some time to THE DOUBT... “Are you guys serious? But I’ve been kill so we went to Nicolau Von Rupp and told him he was getting a Homer Simpson belly...

THE DENIAL... “No way, I’m fitter than ever!”

THE TRUTH... “Yeah, I knew all along you guys were joking!!! Now let me eat my salad sandwich.”

“Just go there and surf for your semi-final spot!”. Nuno Telmo

COACHING Miguel Blanco!


“I WANT IT” | TAKE 1 O Caixa Geral

de Depósitos Peniche Pro acabou por ser um resultado muito importante para Miguel Blanco. Foi a única etapa em que conseguiu mostrar o seu melhor surf e assim garantiu uma vaga nas meias finais. || The Caixa Geral de Depósitos Peniche Pro was a huge event for Miguel Blanco. It was the only time on the league this year that he really got his surfing together enough to make the semis. photo by Jorge Matreno


063


064


ETERNAL “MEMOIRE” Joackim Guichard descobriu

esta secção seca bem cedo neste dia de prova, abrindo as hostilidade no que toca a tubos profundos. Infelizmente para ele, Nicolau foi mais forte, e Guichard perdeu o heat (nos quartos de final). Mas este tubo ninguém lhe tira da memória! || Joackim Guichard found this drainer early on the day and set the pace for tube time for the day. Unfortunatly for him, Nicolau’s backside attack was stronger and Guichard lost the heat. But this frontside tube will always stay in his memory! photo by Jorge Matreno

065


BEST CARVE

Esta foi uma das melhores curvas de todo o evento mostrando ainda mais uma faceta do surf de Eduardo Fernandes, o surf de rail. || This was one of the best turns of the event, showing yet another hidden talent from Mr. Eduardo Fernandes, his rail surfing. 066

THE “FAILED” ANSWER Zé Ferreira fez um campeonato impecável em Peniche até ser surpreendido por João Guedes. Como resposta Zé deu este tubo, mas não foi suficiente. || Zé Ferreira was in great form in Peniche but a huge score by João Guedes took him out. He tried to respond with this tube, but it wasn’t enough.

HAND UP! “One down, two more winner shakas to go ahah!” photo by Jorge Matreno

HANDS DOWN! O surf de Nicolau Von Rupp estava mesmo no ponto em Peniche. Quando as

secções ficava mais moles ele rodava o tail, garantindo boas pontuações em quase qualquer onda. || Nicolau Von Rupp’s surfing was just “on point” in Peniche. When the sections weren’t hollow he would just let the tail loose, making good scores in any wave. photo by Jorge Matreno


WAVE MAGNET! Filipe Jervis adora tubos e é um íman de ondas perfei-

tas. O resultado na altura em que estiveram as melhores condições do campeonato só podia ser este. Infelizmente, Marlon Lipke apanhou não um mais dois tubos perfeitos, vencedo o heat e qualificando-se pras as meias finais. || Filipe Jervis loves barrels and he his a wave magnet. The result had to be this: a perfect barrel in his heat against Marlon Lipke. Unfortunatly not enough for the victory, though, cause Marlon found to amazing barrels! photos by Jorge Matreno

EVOLUTION A evolução de Diogo Appleton ao longo da LMPS foi impres-

sionante. Este momento (observado pelo seu pai) prova que poderá estar entre os 16 melhores. || Diogo Appleton’s evolution throughout the tour was quite impressive and this move shows that he could be on the top 16.

ONE LAST LOOK | PART 3 Before warming his knees,

Miguel Blanco ran in the sand but never took his eyes out of the line up to check where the perfect waves were. Just like you, that we know you can´t take your eyes of the perfect babe laying in the sand. photos by onfiresurfmag.com

“I WANT IT” | TAKE 2 A maior parte das

notas altas de Miguel Blanco foram de backside. Sempre que a onda permitiu, este surfista soltou o tail e misturou muito power. O resultado foi um lugar na meiafinal, um lugar no top16 e uma vaga nos trials da etapa do World Tour. || Getting most of this big scores on this backside, Miguel Blanco pushed the tail out a few times, mixing it with some powerful spray, making the semi final, the top 16 and at the same time saving a spot at the WCT trials. photo by Jorge Matreno

THE OTHER GOOD NEWS! Telmo wispers the other good news: “You’ve

made it to the WCT Trials.”

THE HAPPY ENDING! Tomás Fernandes gives a lovely face “spank” to Blanco - “No worries buddy, I’ll get you next year!” -, and Telmo enjoys the Happy Ending with a huge smile!

GETTNG DIZZY! Eduardo Fernandes é visto por

muitos como uma máquina de competir mas o que ele é na verdade é um dos mais completos surfistas do nosso país, air reverse de backside. || Eduardo Fernandes is seen by many as a competition machine, but after seeing him make this big air reverse you can’t consider him anything other than a “shred” machine.

SUPERTUBOS WAS ON!!! Para quem estivesse esquecido que João Guedes é um dos “top dogs” do

nosso país, este nortenho fez questão de relembrar o tipo de surf que o levou ao topo do ranking em 2009. || In Peniche João Guedes got seriously barreled but also showed the type of surfing that gave him the portuguese national title back in 2009.

que é um dos mais completos surfistas portugueses, nada que não soubessemos. || Filipe Jervis was pretty much at ease in the tube sections of Supertubos, proving he is one of the most effective portuguese surfers in any type of waves. photo by Jorge Matreno

passou o heat em primeiro sem dar hipóteses a ninguém! || In the quarter finals, Zé Ferreira used his high performance surf to go through in first place! photo by Jorge Matreno
