The 3W: Pro Santa Cruz pres. by Noah Surf House

The Pro Santa Cruz pres. by Noah Surf House returns for a fifth edition from April 6-11, 2020.

What?

The second of two back-to-back QS3,000 events in Portugal, this year the Pro Santa Cruz will wrap up the early-Spring European QS leg after surfers have taken on Caparica the previous week.

Ideally set after the completion of the opening two Challenger Series events in New Zealand and Australia, this event is a chance for surfers who struggled to make their mark down-under for a rebound. With crucial points on the line as we slowly approach the mid-season mark, the Portuguese stops could help competitors secure their spot within the Top 100 for later in the year.

Where?

Halfway between Ericeira and Peniche, the golden beach breaks of Santa Cruz have become extremely popular with surfers looking for a quieter alternative to the main two surfing hubs.

The Noah Surf House ideally located above the beach is the perfect spot to hang post-surf and base yourself while exploring nearby spots.
