Capitulo Perfeito powered by Billabong: Tiago Stock wins Trials

Stock enters the main event on the lookout to stir up trouble in home waters

CASCAIS (January 10, 2024) – The Trials event for the 10th annual Capitulo Perfeitopowered by Billabong took place today in pumping conditions at Carcavelos Beach, Portugal. Local surfer Tiago Stock claimed the top honors in the final to qualify for the main event. 


It was an exciting event for all trialists with a healthy dose of Atlantic Ocean swell serving 6-feet set waves throughout the morning. With an outstanding performance that saw him score the two best waves of the competition (7 pts in the first round and 8 pts in the final), Stock secured the local wildcard after overcoming his home mates Santiago Graça (2nd), João Kopke (3rd) and António Lacrau (4th) in the last heat.


Having proved he can perform at the highest level, Stock will be a threat in the main event where his combination of local knowledge and natural barreling expertise will no doubt come in handy against the 15 previously confirmed tuberiding specialists in the heat draw – Anthony Walsh, Aritz Aranburu, Balaram Stack, Bruno Santos, Dylan Graves, Francisca Veselko, João Maria Mendonça, Michael February, Nathan Florence,Nic von Rupp, Pedro Boonman, Rob Machado, Salvador Vala, Tiago Pires and William Alliotti.


The stellar contingent will be ready to go as soon as the main event gets greenlighted, which will only happen when the forecast indicates a consistent swell and strong enough offshore winds. This year there’s 40.000€ on the table plus 7.500€ in performance awards.
