Brazilian powerhouse Bruno Santos claimed the Perfect Chapter 2015, a tube riding contest held in Carcavelos, Portugal.

"Bruninho" replaced the recently deceased Ricardo dos Santos and was able to honor the memory of his fellow surfer with a flawless performance in the barrel. Santos truly was the man of the event with a total final heat score of 18.65 points.

"I had never surfed in Carcavelos but I came here with the videos of last year's edition in my head. I flew with an image of Carcavelos and ended up confirming it. It was amazing to be able to replace Ricardinho and represent him with dignity," expressed Bruno Santos.

The Brazilian surfer defeated Nicolau Von Rupp, Tiago Pires and Ruben Gonzalez in the decisive heat. Pires won the newly-created "Ricardo dos Santos Attitude" trophy for his deep and critical tube rides in the 4th edition of the Perfect Chapter.

"It is a great honor to receive this award. Ricardinho was one of the nicest and fearless surfers I have ever met. He will be in history as one of the best tube riders and a genuine ambassador of Brazilian surfing," adds Tiago Pires.
