Rip Curl Pro Search in Portugal
The Rip Curl Pro Search will take place in Peniche, Portugal. It was supposed to start today, but the waves weren't big enough, so a lay day was declared. This is the ninth event out of 10 in the 2009 ASP World Tour. Native son Tiago Pires is the Portugal's first ever qualifier for the ASP Tour. The 29-year-old currently ranks 23 in the world.
