Big swell and north wind forecast for the weekend

Cascais, February 15, 2022

The Perfect Chapter powered by Billabong, a championship that takes place on the best wave day of winter, at Carcavelos Beach, is monitoring wave and wind conditions for the weekend. There is a strong probability that the championship will take place on Saturday 19 February.

“We are forecasting a large swell, with a high period, and winds from the north quadrant, which are offshore in Carcavelos. This factor is important to have perfect and tubular waves, which is what surfers and the public most want to see in a championship like the Perfect Chapter,” said Rui Costa, organizer of the Perfect Chapter.

The waiting period for the Perfect Chapter runs from January 17, 2022 to March 17, 2022. The event has a 72h notice period, to allow international surfers to travel to Portugal and arrive in time for the event to start. In this edition, the surfers who come from the furthest are Adrian Buchan and Russel Bierke, from Australia, Clay Marzo, Kiron Jabour and Anthony Walsh, from Hawaii, and Bruno Santos and Adriano Souza from Brazil.
