If any of you have the chance to play hooky from school or work tomorrow, I suggest you take it and drive straight out to Lincoln City. With only 48 hour notice, big-wave surfers from all over the world are currently flying in for the 6th annual Nelscott Reef big wave contest- the only big wave contest in the pacific NW. Contest officials made the call sunday evening after carefully watching swell charts, stating that this particular storm should produce waves between 30 and 45 feet, the largest forecast in the contest’s history. Grab some binoculars, your warm jacket, and get ready to see some gnarly s**t. And by the way, there will be no jet ski assists this year- paddle only- so you’re guaranteed to see some charging.
