Contest Info


The Nelscott Reef Pro is a one-day, annual event that is held between October 15th and March 31st. The event is called on a 3 days notice in order to guarantee pristine conditions.

We are currently in season and looking for waves.

The event operates on a traffic light system, waiting for the right combination of weather and swell.

Red light means there is no potential swell in the near future.

Yellow happens if we see a developing system in the Pacific that looks like it will produce the right conditions.

Green light goes on when we give 72 hours notice to athletes and sponsors.

This event is organized by Gabe Smith, director of the XAG.  He has worked on the Nelscott events for the past 4 years. Gabe has been working nonstop to find an event style that fits Nelscott.

We are giving out over $10,000 in cash and prizes for the winners.

We are hosting a Men’s And Women’s event this year, and we are splitting the prize money equally between the men and women.
