The Inertia

Earlier this year, a collection of the world’s most notable barrel hounds convened on Carcavelos, a world-renowned beach break in Portugal. Anthony Walsh, Nic Von Rupp, Tiago Pires, Corey Lopez, Aritz Aramburu, and Kiron Jabour were just a handful of the men who competed in the seventh edition of The Perfect Chapter, which has become Europe’s most prestigious tube-riding event.

Anthony Walsh won the 2020 event in heavy, overhead, offshore barrels at Cascais beach, but this video tells the story of that event beyond the heats themselves. From the pre-dawn arrival of the surfers to waiting for the wind to turn offshore, the chatter, the nerves, and eventually crowning Walsh the champion.

Only the best. We promise.
