Itty Bitty S***** Wave Contest to award prizes by committee

Surf up the D River for $200 combined purse

Surfing up D River

Nelscott Reef Big Wave Classic Founder John Forse announced the D River Itty Bitty S***** Wave Contest (DRIBSWC) Thursday, where anyone with a drone or camera can win a combined purse of $200 as they film contestants surfing up the D River.

You read that right. There will be surfing up the D-River at the first DRIBSWC.

The unusual conditions of a large ocean swell combined with King tides will allow waves to go up the D river. Forse is alerting the surfing community to these conditions and wants to see anyone with a drone or camera submit their footage of surfers riding up the ‘World’s Shortest River’ for a prize.

Forse said the best times to surf D River will be Friday through Sunday 7-10 a.m.

Prize categories:

  • Longest wave
  • Best gag wave
  • Best debris survival

“It’s just a way to keep everyone engaged while the big wave contest is not running,” Forse said. “It’s also a way to make a quick couple hundred bucks!”

Contestants can go any time they want but Forse advises the best opportunities are from 7-10 a.m.

“Its such a unique opportunity because there’s only a couple times a year when we can do something like this.” said Forse.

Forse issued a disclaimer:

*This is voluntary and there are hazards; we assume no responsibility for injuries or damages while attempting your submission. Please maintain your awareness while attempting your video entry. BE SAFE!*

All genders and ages are welcome.

To be entered in the contest surfers must submit their video entries to the Nelscott Reef Big Wave Classic Facebook Page by Feb. 23. They can also message John Forse on Facebook.

Winners will be announced after review by panel.
