The 5th annual Allianz Perfect Chapter powered by Billabong voting period ended yesterday, leading up to the 16 final contenders. With a holding period raging from January 17th to March 17th, the original one-day Portuguese surfing contest will take place at the famous Praia do Norte, in Nazaré, gathering some of the best tube riders in the world for a full day of competition in perfect, hollow waves. 

As in its previous editions, 2016 Allianz Perfect Chapter powered by Billabong final contenders were chosen by the public through online polling, giving surf fans around the world the opportunity to vote for their favorite wave riders under two different categories – Portuguese Surfers and International (non-Portuguese) Surfers –, having the final say at who will actually compete. The 24 names up for polling have been pre-selected by the event organizers in association with a Committee of Experts holding a profound knowledge of the world surfing scene.
