Surfers with worldwide reputations visit the Oregon Coast for the challenge? Who would have thought it? When conditions are right at Nelscott Reef, near Lincoln City, a wave several stories high appears. The wave shows up only intermittently, is threatening, and irresistible to top surfers. We visit the annual international competition coinciding with the big wave’s occurrence at Nelscott Reef.
