This time, the Nelscott Reef Trials (currently on standby), a serious big wave event that will challenge competitors as they battle to win a place on the 2015/2016 Big Wave Tour promises to deliver 30-foot-and-above waves to the infamous cold-water reef in the Pacific Northwest.

A world-renowned big wave reef situated outside of Oregon’s Lincoln City, Nelscott has hosted big wave competitions since 2010 and now exists as the sole qualifying event for the elite Big Wave Tour. The Nelscott Reef Trials welcomes a 24-man field of world-class athletes that will battle for four highly-coveted positions on this season's Big Wave Tour (BWT). 

“Nelscott has been a part of the Big Wave Tour for a few years now and it’s an ideal venue to host our sole qualifying event for the 2015/2016 season,” Pete Mel, Big Wave Commissioner, said. “We’ve seen some promising activity in the Pacific Northwest this year and we have a great field that will be contesting the event.”

The Nelscott Reef Trials window runs from December 1, 2014 to February 28, 2015. Stay tuned.
