On the biggest days of the season, Nelscott Reef breaks about a mile offshore in Lincoln City, Oregon. The massive open ocean swells are generated during the winter months.

Coming primarily from the northwest and westward direction, these storms produce wave heights in the 30’-50’ range once they hit the outer reef with some occasional crazy swells maxing out in the 60’-70’ range.
