Random Photo From Work: Nelscott Reef Tow-in Classic
On December 11, 2005 Kyle Odegard and I made the drive over to Lincoln City to cover the inagural Nelscott Reef Tow-in Classic. We had seen video of tow-in surfing and were aware of several large waves around the world, we were a bit surprised when we learned a large wave had been discovered here in Oregon. This had the potential to be a really good story, we checked the Nelscott reef website on a regular basis waiting for the green light. We arrived to find a small traffic jam at the event and frost on the ground. Kyle spent most of his time on the beach where the competitors were entering and exiting the chilly water. I bounced between the beach and a house on the hill with a view of the waves. Kyle and I can bee seen interviewing and photographing local surfer Jason Garding about three quarters of the way through this video. Now in its fourth year the event window for 2008 is from October 1 through December 31, check the website for updates if you want to attend. The wave is a half mile offshore so bring some binoculars or a telescope if you want to see the action.
