The Team: We have formed an all new management team that are highly respected and recognized in the industry. With this new group, we are dedicated to producing a successful Pro/Am event each year that will benefit the local chargers and the businesses of this beach side town in Lincoln City.
Contest Info: The Pro-Am is more than a contest, it’s about everybody working together to create a day these amazing waves can be ridden and all can see it. The effort it takes to get the surfers out to the reef and cameras on them for these events is pretty huge. From calling the day, to getting the gear here in time, it is a huge challenge.
