Since 2014, Gliding Barnacles (GB) has undergone 6 editions which successively expanded and gave new meaning to a celebration that started with a group of friends, about their passion for the ocean and the surf in Figueira da Foz.

This desire to connect the sea with the city in a major event was able to transform a peripheral place – Cabedelo beach – into a space that challenged its own limits and that brought together, every year, the four corners of the world through the culture of the sea, art, music and gastronomy.

Until today, the GB has stood out for its respect for the different cultures that express themselves around it, has promoted national and international partnerships that have positively moved Figueira da Foz and quickly became a crucial event to the growth of surf culture in Portugal.
