Tamega performances at Pipeline in Hawaii in the 90′s were mind blowing. He went from pure death wish closeout lip launches to precision barrel riding. He was so competitive he did what ever it took to win the crown. Tamega like all champions dealing with the media during a Pipe campaign.

Throughout the 80′s and early 90′s next to the World Title competition held at Pipeline before the World Tour was set up and in motion the next prestigious series of events was The Morey Bodyboards National tour held in the US. Throughout the years Mike Stewart had a virtual stranglehold over this circuit but in ’94 Brazils Guilherme Tamega is hot on his trail and wins the ’94 Pipe World title as he establishes himself as Stewarts main rival.

Guilerme Tamega from Brazil has notched up an impressive contest portfolio. 6 times World Tour Champ, 3 times Shark Island champion and countless other titles since he first began competing in the late 80s. Since those early days Tamega along with Mike Stewart together are the most dominant competitive riders the sport has seen to date and both are still competing on the World circuit even today.
