AWT Pistol River Wave Bash - Day One

Day One at the AWT Pistol River Wave Bash
The town of Gold Beach, Oregon, has been descended on by the competitors for the 2013 AWT Pistol River Wave Bash presented by Starboard. The opening night party and registration was hosted by the Inn of the Beachcomber and everyone had a blast with BBQ, beer and music... always a winning combination.

Day One at the AWT Pistol River Wave Bash


Day One was a relaxing day as the wind didn't materialize enough to run any heats, but we're ready for when it does show up. The main action on the beach was with a SUP clinic from Bernd Roediger and Fiona Wylde. They gave the crowd plenty of great tips on paddling and catching waves. I'm sure some will use them to their advantage at the upcoming SUP Gold Beach Challenge presented by the Inn of the Beachcomber that will be running on Day Two. Stay tuned tomorrow for a report on the action and photos from this exciting SUP event.
