Dive N' Surf Oregon Pro Big Wave event ON

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 12 March, 2014 - Twenty of the world’s highest ranked Xpreshon Big Wave World Tour surfers will challenge four local surfers on the most formidable big waves in the Pacific Northwest, Nelscott Reef. Waves are forecasted to be 30ft faces with light winds and good tides.

For the first time in history, the Dive N’ Surf Oregon Pro will have a Live HD Webcast streaming to homes around the world and this year also marks the first time that Universal Sports has come on board to air the final live on national television. Included in this year’s event is an hour long Women’s Super Heat. This marks the second time that Nelscott reef has hosted women’s big wave surfers and the first time it will be streamed live via the HD Webcast.

The Dive N’ Surf Oregon Pro HD webcast can be seen on: The Xpreshon App for Windows 8 and Xbox Live. 

Officially named Tacklebuster Reef, but more commonly referred to as Nelscott Reef, is one of the Pacific NW's hidden gems.  Located a half mile out to sea in Lincoln City, Oregon, just up the beach from Spanish Head. It is a high performance big wave with both rights and lefts, but predominantly rights when it’s really big. The wave is protected by miles of beach break surf that is mostly impassable when the swells are big enough for the reef to break.

Although there are smaller days when the reef can be paddled to from the beach, Nelscott Reef isn’t generally considered a big wave spot until the beach break is too big to paddle. In these conditions, PWCs are the access vehicle of choice, but you still have to deal with beach launching to get to the wave, and launching a ski from the beach can be a truly precarious undertaking with high tides and huge surf.

The waves at Nelscott Reef are rideable up to 50-foot and beyond. Add regular rainfall and chilly land and sea temperatures to the equation, and you’ve got a truly rugged big wave spot. Water temperatures from October to March range between 47-53 F (6-12 C), while the average daytime air temperatures range between 55-61 F (13-16 C).
