Nelscott Reef is one of the top recognized big wave locations on the planet and we are excited to grow this grassroots event into a promising venue for locals and global underground chargers that have a passion and the commitment to charge the giant waves that break a mile off the coast.
The all new Pro-Am is intended to offer a chance to create a whole new generation of big wave surfers right here in Oregon. With the all new Pro-Am design we can now accommodate all the locals who wish to have a shot at surfing in the Pro-Am event, and share the season with the Pro’s. The contest will be open to any chargers who qualify to surf the huge waves that light up the Oregon coast. This event will be the only recognized and supported Pro/Am big wave surfing event in the Pacific Northwest.
Mad Bro Inc. was created with the intention of supporting non traditional sports. Surfing is one of those. Over 30% of today’s youth have no desire to play traditional sports. Getting support to have competitions that matter for these sports is a huge challenge, especially when mother nature is involved. The Pro-Am competition is the only entry level Big wave, paddle in surfing competition in the world that is still running. The athletes that come to compete in these do so with no huge purse on the line, just the titles and love of Big wave surfing.
