In between Winter surf sessions we have been developing this brand new website for the Surfcastle.
Gaucho and Ginjas created a partnership with the Unspoiled team who did an incredible job in enhancing our website to another level.
Our good friend and photographer and surfer Daniel Espirito Santo owns the photo credits of this website.
We welcome you to browse through our new website and please give us some feedback.
This Winter we have been blessed to have ridden very good Waves with awesome mild weather.
Over here in Peniche the wind has been blowing off-shore and the Winter swells have been delivering very amazing waves in most of the surfing spots during the months of January & February.
The weather hasn't been very cold which makes the Winter surf sessions become more joyful for the Surfers.
In this particular photo taken in the end of January João Gaucho is getting tubed at the reef break right in front of the Surfcastle.
Celebrating 50 years of Surfing in Peniche !
2014 marked the year we reached half a century of Surfing in Surfcastle !
We also organised a symbolic celebration in the Surfcastle during Spring with all the core surfers from the first generation of Surfers in Peniche !
We had the unique opportunity to share the surfing memories already lived in this house during all these decades by sharing old photos, videos and the epic stories of the amazing surf sessions.
This was the perfect occasion for us to go surf together with the classic old vintage surf boards. After the surf session we organized a very cool lunch in the terrace and a little party in our bar, playing all the classic vinyl records…
...We honestly think that this core group of surfers already did so many good things to start & develop surfing in Portugal.
The Surfcastle took the responsibility to provide this symbolic tribute to all the surfing pioneers of Peniche.
