Capítulo Perfeito: tube fest at Supertubos, Peniche

Nicolau Von Rupp has conquered the Capítulo Perfeito 2013, a tube riding competition held in Supertubos, Peniche, Portugal.

When getting barreled is everything that matters in a surf contest, action is guaranteed. The European Pipeline served 1.5-meter waves to crown the best in the pit.

Nicolau Von Rupp, Ivo Cação, Francisco Alves and Marlon Lipke secured a ticket to the final and gave their best in the small barrels on offer.

Von Rupp took the Capítulo Perfeito 2013 with a 10-point ride. "The onshore wind and the random swell were a problem, but starting off the final with a 10 was a relief", said Nicolau.

The German-Portuguese surfer was followed in the podium by Marlon Lipke, Francisco Alves and Ivo Cação. Last year, the event was conquered by Tiago Pires.

The ban on surf contests that are not sanctioned by the Association of Surfing Professionals (ASP) halted the participation of the only Portuguese surfer on the World Championship Tour.

When you reach the "End of the Road," you're all by yourself. Are you sure you're ready to get barreled at Tahiti's infamous Teahupoo?
