Like swallows returning to Capistrano, surfers get swallowed up in big waves every winter off Lincoln City’s Nelscott beach. A reef about a half mile offshore provides spectacular waves that surfers fly in to compete in an event that is part of a world wide scheduled series of surfing competitions.

The waves were forecasted to be 8 to 10 feet but as you can see, some of them were pushing upwards to 30 feet, so it was a good event for the surfers as they added to their world-wide point tally.

Entrants were competing for $5,000 in prize money and other prizes. Contestants fly in from around the world to compete at Nelscott, some arriving by private jet at local airfields.
