Otter Rock and Roll is June 11th. It’s Time to Sign Up.
Otter Rock and Roll is a family event that includes a youth surf contest and beach cleanup presented by Newport Surfrider on International Surfing Day. This year’s 12th annual event is on Saturday, June 11th at Otter Rock-Devil’s Punchbowl State Park. Surfers 18 and under come from all over Oregon and beyond to surf with friends and family. There are three age groups for the girls and boys divisions. For the younger groms, there is a child with parent division. For beginners, there is a division in which a surfboard, wetsuit, and a personal coach are provided. Contest registration is now open online at https://orr2022.eventbrite.com.
This is a big event and Surfrider needs lots of volunteer help to make it happen. For volunteer information and to sign up, go to https://volunteersignup.org/W7DPL
