To all ‘Nelscott Reef Big Wave Classic fans:
Unfortunately Lincoln City officials have decided not to issue any permit for a big wave surfing event this season because of the ongoing violations (2 years in a row) of the other surfing event staged out of Canyon Park.
This is also a notice to existing and potential sponsors of the other event that any solicitation for sponsorship will be for a non permitted and illegal event. Additionally, Oregon State Parks has denied a permit to the other event due to illegally using State Parks access at D River last season and illegally staging event on beach.
The Nelscott Reef Big Wave Classic has held permitted events at Nelscott Reef since 2005, and this is not the first time that ‘out of town’ culprits have spoiled the event for fans, and bilked sponsors both local and national out of money for either a non existent or laughable event. Hopefully Lincoln City will get everything sorted out and the ‘Nelscott Reef Big Wave Classic’ will be back next season.
