Supertubos turned on today with offshore three-to-five foot (1.5 metre) barrels for the world's best surfers to sink their fangs into as the Rip Curl Pro Portugal completed Rounds 1 and 2 of competition.

Event No. 8 of 10 on the 2010 ASP World Tour, the Rip Curl Pro Portugal bore witness to the ASP Top 34 redefining progressive beachbreak surfing with a veritable cornucopia of barrels, power turns and aerials.

Adrian Buchan (AUS), 27, current ASP World No. 6, proved the form surfer of the day, netting the event's high heat total of an 18.00 out of a possible 20 for a series of deep forehand barrels and powerful turns.

"The conditions are pretty hit and miss today with some heats having lulls and others not" Buchan said. "We had really fun waves during that heat. It was really consistent and I was able to find a rhythm pretty quick. My equipment feels really good at the moment and I'm stoked to come back after a disappointing Round 1 heat yesterday with a strong performance today."
