Pistol River Wave Bash

The International Windsurfing Tour will be at Gold Beach, Oregon, starting Thursday, June 7th, 2018. Back for the ninth year in a row, this is the Pistol River Wave Bash and runs through Sunday, June 10th.

With insurance and permits all in order, the contest is set to run at “The Rock” in the Pistol River State Park. If conditions warrant, the contest will be in front of the Beachcomber in Gold Beach.

There will be a skipper’s meeting every morning where the call will be announced. Be sure and register and bring your friends along, too.

When you arrive, you can access “The Rock,” which is in the middle of the open sandy beach, from a gravel parking area just off the main highway. Park there and walk your gear 200m down to the beach through the coastal vegetation. It is just 10 minutes from Gold Beach where you can find accommodations for your stay. The Inn of the Beachcomber sponsors the event and this is where you can stay. Be sure to let them know you are there for this event when you book your stay. http:///.innofthebeachcomber.com.

Cold Water wetsuits are needed for the chilly Pacific waters. The air temperatures can be either cold or hot, so bring warm clothes, boardies and t-shirts.

You can obtain more information about the event and about sharing a room with other riders from Sam at sam@internationalwindsurfingtour.com

What a fun way to spend a weekend on the Oregon Coast. If you pass by Umpqua River Haven on your way to the coast road coming or going, do stop and and see us www.umpquahaven.com We’d love to hear all about your windsurfing experience at Gold Beach!
