The ASP Europe 6-Star Event EDP SURF PRO ESTORIL 2012 presented by Billabong is heading to the thunderous beachbreaks of Praia de Carcavelos, Cascais, Portugal on September 21-23. A move in dates from July to an improved swell window will now make it an even more popular stop for the world’s best women surfers.
Forecast analytics show that September is the perfect time of year to run the event with a swell consistency of 78% and an average wave size of two metres. Winds are also very favorable with the dominant northeast winds blowing offshore throughout the early Autumn season. Those stats mean that there is a very good chance that the best surfers in the world will be surfing one of Europe's best beachbreaks in front of the famously passionate Portuguese crowds.
