IT'S ON. The Perfect Chapter, Nazare's own barrel riding fest is officially a go on Saturday.

This is a one-day, no holds-barred tube riding competition at Praia do Norte. When Nazare isn't unleashing fresh hell, it is a barrel playground on the inside. It's the sixth year the Perfect Chapter has run and the guest list is a who's who of chargers.

Alex Botelho, Alex Gray, Antonio Silva, Anthony Walsh, Aritz Aranburu, Bruno Grilo, Bruno Santos, Cory Lopez, Joao Guedes, Kiron Jabour, Miguel Blanco, Nathan Florence, Nic von Rupp, Pedro Boonman, Pedro Vianna (Scooby) and Tiago Pires feature on the contender's list.

These 16 men will be scored solely on their barrel riding skills. That's it. Best barrel wins. But the most committed will take home a special trophy, the Ricardo dos Santos Commitment Award, honouring that late hero.
