florida_barrel

 

Teahupoo rarely comes to Florida, but @corylopez knows exactly where to go to get shacked senseless when a giant North Atlantic storm takes over the whole ocean. This was yesterday (2/12), with more to come. Check the site for the full #swellstory later today. (Also, stay tuned for #dispatchcaribbean — we sent a few pros down to the Caribbean along with Surfline photo editor @billywatts to take advantage of the swell and we’ll be doing daily updates over the weekend.)

Cory Lopez to replace Aritz Aranburu in Allianz Perfect Chapter

 

 

CASCAIS (February 18, 2015) – The 4th annual Allianz Perfect Chapter powered by Billabong has been called ON for Friday. Some of the best tube riders in the world are joining the Portuguese crew for a one-day barrel-oriented

competition at Carcavelos Beach (Cascais, Portugal). First official call is scheduled for 7 am tomorrow morning.

Being an event where participants are chosen by the public through free web-based polling, event organizers have immediately convoked the most voted surfers to attend the competition. Some of them, though, are currently in Australia competing in WSL qualifying events and won’t be able to attend Perfect Chapter, urging the organization to make the necessary replacements.

João Kopke, Alex Botelho, Filipe Jervis Pereira, Cory Lopez and

Edgar Nozes are thus replacing Frederico Morais, Vasco Ribeiro, José Ferreira, Aritz Aranburu and Nathan Hedge, who are attending the Australian events. Tomás Fernandes, Gony Zubizarreta and Pedro Henrique were originally up for replacement (under the Competitors category) but are also competing in Australia, leaving room for Kopke, Botelho and Jervis to take a shot at one of the most wanted surfing titles in Europe.

Thus, the final 16 Perfect Chapter contenders are Tiago Pires, Miguel Blanco, Marlon Lipke, João Kopke, Alex Botelho, Filipe Jervis Pereira, Francisco Alves, João Guedes, Ruben Gonzalez, Alexandre Ferreira, Pedro Scooby, Bruno Santos, Cory Lopez, Nicolau von Rupp, Rodrigo Herédia and Edgar Nozes.

A 15,000€ global prize money will be at stake as well as special awards for best tube (Allianz, 2000€), best score (Kia, 1000€), worst wipeout (Nixon, 500€) and most passionate claim (VonZipper, 300€).

In addition, as a tribute to Ricardo dos Santos, the event’s organization is awarding the most committed surfer with a trophy named after the Brazilian surfer, who was among the 13 athletes chosen by the fans to take part in the competition. The Rds Commitment Award is honoring the most vigorous surfer according to commitment and raw courage criteria, as a way of celebrating Ricardinho’s memory and legacy.

The event will be webcasted live at perfect-chapter.com.

The Allianz Perfect Chapter powered by Billabong is sponsored by Allianz, the Municipality of Cascais, Billabong, Kia, MOCHE and MEO and it’s associated with the media partners RTP, Fuel TV, Jornal i, Mega Hits, SURFPortugal, SurfTotal, Carve, Surf Session and Hardcore.

Cory Lopez – Exclusive Behind the Scenes Story of the day he scored the Surfer’s Journal Cover Shot

 

journal

 

Following “first-hand” account by Cory Lopez…

You can’t win them all and on this day the ocean won.

The waves were about as good as you can get at a spot that almost never breaks. @alekparker and I were the only guys out. We had traded waves for about a hour when this extra thick one came in that I thought looked like a good idea. The drop was really late so I was just focused on that, once I made the drop I knew I was deep. I did a massive pump, but realized right away that there was no chance of making the wave. I tried to time my jump as late as I could in hopes of slipping out the back. But it did not work and I got sucked over and instantly slammed my head into the reef. The blow was hard, dizzying and especially confusing by the fact that a peace of coral had gone straight into my ear and punctured my ear drum. Alec assisted me in getting to the beach since I could not see straight.

The worst part about the whole thing was not the pain of the wipe-out or the pain from the infection in my head that had me feeling like a zombie for six weeks. The worst thing of all, the thing that still hurts to this day, is the fact that I had to go in and leave perfect waves behind.

Cory Scored the following Surfer’s Journal Cover during the same swell and session at this rare Caribbean Secret Spot.

Cory got barreled out of his brains surfing this secret spot that lit-up during a Hurricane Swell just a few short years ago. He busted his eardrum on the last wave of this session, but scored a bunch of memorable “solo” barrels in the process!

“Driving up,” remembers Florida star Cory Lopez, “we knew the first day could be a little sketchy with the winds, and the second day could be really small. We rolled the dice and scored fun waves both days.”

The Box is one of Corey Wilson’s favorite places to shoot. By the looks of this photo, we’d guess that it’s one of Cory Lopez’s favorite places to surf too.
