The first Itty Bitty S***** Wave Contest is happening this weekend with the coinciding of King tides and a large ocean swell that allows surfers to ride waves up the D River.

The “World’s Shortest River” saw action from professional surfers Wade Lawson and Anthony Tashnick, as well as locals Jon “Headstand” Monroe and Jonee Wright.

Professional big wave surfer and helicopter pilot Lawson said he was alerted to the contest at the last minute by Nelcott Reef Big Wave Classic organizer John Forse. Lawson chose to SUP (stand up paddle) the river.

“I can’t feel my feet or my hands,” he said. “I’m just glad to be a part of this.”

Big wave surfer Tashnick showed off his skills on the waves by getting the longest ride of the day.

“I’m a firm believer in the twin fin,” Tashnick said. “People try to talk s*** but really it’s unfair. Twin fin is what it’s all about.”
