Yesterday, one of Europe’s Surfing Doctors and contest doctor Nuno Oliveira came into action at one of the major ASP tour events in Europe: the Rip Curl Pro in Peniche. During a wipe-out at Supertubos, Miguel Pupo got hit on is head by his own board, which left a minor cut on the back of his head. Dr. Oliveira, 5th year resident orthopedic surgery and member of the European Association of Surfing Doctors, closed the wound with several stitches. Also, C.J. Hobgood and one of Rip Curl Pro’s commentators needed some of his medical attention at Day 4 of the tournament, closing off the day with a interview. Inspiring to see Nuno help out the ASP-tour pro’s from maybe the best workplace in Europe at the moment…!
