Obsesh Creator, Pro Surfer and Luminary GoPro Videographer Anthony Walsh has added another win to his prestigious career with a first place at the 7th annual barrel-riding content, The Perfect Chapter, in Portugal.

Obsesh Creator Anthony Walsh has added another win to his prestigious career with a first place at the 7th Annual Perfect Chapter, the barrel-riding contest that took place recently in Carcavelos Beach, Cascais, Portugal. After a last minute decision to replace defending champion William Aliotti, Walsh’s two-wave total score of 8.60 points secured first place, as he became the fourth alternative to win the contest.

“I love these kinds of events. You know you’re going to score because the waiting period is over three months, and they wait for the best one day! To win an event like this, with some of the best surfers on the planet, is amazing. Can’t wait to defend my title next year,” said Anthony Walsh.

The Perfect Chapter has grown in seven years from a local contest to drawing international athletes for the one-day surfing competition which has taken place across some of Portugal’s most stunning beaches. The other event winners this year included former Perfect Chapter champion Nic von Rupp in second place, Aritz Aranburu in third, and Balaram Stack in fourth.

In addition to being known around the world as a professional surfer, Anthony is a luminary GoPro big wave barrel videographer, traveling the world partnering with brands to create content and tell stories. In addition to being an Obsesh Athlete Creator, Anthony is sponsored by GoPro, XS Energy, Litra, Gunther Rohn Surfboards and Ocean and Earth. He lives in Oahu with his wife, pro longboarder Crystal Walsh, and their son Damien.
