Hercules and Papoa, Peniche, Portugal

Following the epic paddle session at Belharra on the South West Coast of France, comes another big wave session from Europe thanks to the storm Hercules. This one's a tow session from Portugal. Nazare this isn't, no this took place at Papoa, in the area of Peniche (not too far from the Rip Curl Pro venue).
