CHIANCA BROTHERS CONFIRM TO COMPETE IN 51 ICE E-PRO BRASIL

Anticipation is building for what’s sure to be the best yet of the Surf Web Series, the online surfing world championship, about to kick off in South America on October 26, 2020. The upcoming 51 Ice E-Pro Brasil invites the “Brazilian Storm” powerhouse to show the world what they’ve been up to during the times of quarantine, limited to surfing their regional breaks. Thankfully for residing surfers, the Brazilian coastline offers over 4,660 miles (7,500 km) of beaches to explore. From the island paradises of Florianópolis and Fernando de Noronha, to the cityscapes of Rio de Janeiro and Maresias, the competitors vary from many different spots in the vast country of Brazil, but they all have one thing in common—they’re passionate about the sport and extremely competitive, especially with the first ever national SWS title and the chance to compete in the SWS World Final Championship against participating nations. The official competitor list for the 51 Ice E-Pro Brasil has been finalized, with some exciting last-minute additions. Brotherly duo Lucas “Chumbo” Chianca and João “Chumbinho” Chianca from Saquarema have both confirmed participation, both known for their success in the competitive arena. Lucas was on an unprecedented winning streak on the Big Wave World Tour, claiming victories at the Surf Open League’s 2018 Puerto Escondido Cup in addition to the Nazaré Challenge and Mormaii Big Wave contest held at Praia da Cardoso. Photo: Nilton Gilbao / Waves.com.br Focusing his competitive efforts on the WSL Qualifying Series, João “Chumbinho” Chianca secured a runner-up finish at last winter’s Volcom Pipe Pro to shoot himself up the rankings. The two brothers will be favorites to win and extremely hard to beat, each with their own arsenal of aerial tricks. Former WCT surfers, Heitor Alves from Ceará and Willian Cardoso from Balneário Camboriú, will test their years of experience on the Tour to see if they can defeat the country’s young up-and-coming talent. Ian Gouveia from Maresias joins the list of CT elite confirmed to participate at the 51 Ice E-Pro Brasil, guaranteed to raise the bar of this unique digital competition. The youngest competitor of the event at only 16 years of age, Caio Costa from Maresias has confirmed his spot to take on the veterans. Another young gun at 18, Mateus Sena from Rio Grande do Norte, is also ready for battle on the internet. Additional pros eager and ready to compete include: Samuel Pupo (Maresias), Weslley Dantas (Ubatuba), Lucas Silveira (Florianópolis), Krystian Kymerson (Vitória), Leo Casal (Florianópolis), Matheus Navarro (Florianópolis), Thiago Camarão (Maresias), Luan Hanada (Guarujá), Vitor Ferreira (Rio de Janeiro), Renan Pulga (São Paulo), Hizunome Bettero (São Paulo), and Pedro Dib (São Sebastião). The 51 Ice E-Pro Brasil kicks off Round 1 on October 26, 2020, and will crown its first-ever national champion on November 8th during a LIVE awards ceremony on YouTube.com/TVWaves

51 ICE E-PRO BRASIL OFFERS LARGEST PRIZE PURSE IN SOUTH AMERICA ON SWS TOUR

Florianópolis local Lucas Silveira is ready to battle for the Brazilian national title. Photo: Bruno Zanin / Waves.com.br Participating in Curta + Floripa presents 51 Ice E-Pro Brasil 2020 will be a unique experience for many athletes: “It comes with a different kind of expectation,” declared Lucas Silveira (pictured above), the 2016 WSL Pro Junior world champion. “The images that were sent to the virtual championship have already happened, so there is no pressure to have a good performance as happens in traditional championships. Yet, the challenge is no one knows who the opponents are until the last minute, or what kind of waves they are going to submit for each heat.” The deadline for competitor registration ends next Sunday, October 11th. For many athletes and managers, being a part of this first edition of the world circuit held by SWS will be a historic moment for national surfing. “There are only a few days until the end of registration, and it’s sure to be a unique event, because for the first time we will have a virtual champion in Brazil. Now we are receiving the first swell of the spring, and it will be an excellent opportunity for athletes to film the seven waves the need to participate in the championship,” revealed Pedro Falcão, Executive Director of ABRASP. Event registrations can be made through the Fecasurf office (Catarinense Surf Federation) in the amount of R$200.00. Surfers must make a deposit in the account of Fecasurf, and send the payment receipt to the email fecasurf2020@gmail.com. The Brazilian stage of the Surf Web Series will close another edition of Curta + Floripa 2020, an ongoing activation to support the practice of various sports in all districts of Florianópolis, Santa Catarina during the summer season. The 2020 project would have completed in March during the stage of the Circuit Santa Catarina and Brazilian Professional Surfing at Joaquina beach. However, the country’s increasingly severe Covid-19 pandemic forced the organizers to suspend all events that would be held in the state during that period.
