Winter is here – Storm at Peniche – 3/2/2017

 

It’s beginning of February and we have the first big storm of this winter in Peniche.

Not a hurricane, not a cyclone but gave us some considerable swell size. No damage but these situations are good to remember how strong the ocean is.

Here you can see some photos of the storming passing by Peniche.

Some people had fun at Praia do Cerro. Some good waves and good surf there!
