HISTORY

Next to Mike Stewart, Guilherme Tamega from Brazil is the sports most successful competitor. He single handedly put the brakes on Mikes dominance at Pipe both free surfing and competing. In ’94 when he won his first of many World Titles, Tamega went ballistic in the life threatening conditions during the finals at Pipeline launching and pulling into some incredibly heavy waves to win the title. He notched up a 10 point ride with an impossible long barrel. Guilherme said after the event he was prepared to die to win. He has won 3 Shark Island Challenge titles as well as multiple World Titles. Throughout the 90′s he held a healthy rivalry with Stewart pushing each other to another level of  ability to win at all costs. Tamega is the ultimate competitor, a fact he has proven time after time… Dominating at Pipe, pic Stroh.
