Pedro Monteiro, who won today’s Perfect Chapter Trials presented by UF Carcavelos and Parede, is the 16th qualified surfer.

“The youngsters are in better physical shape and with an increasingly fine-tuned technique, but in tubes there is also the luck factor, and knowing how to choose the waves well.
