Pistol River Wave Bash

The Annual Windsurfing Competition

Pistol River Wave Bash, Pistol River State Park, at Gold Beach June 8th thru the 12th, 2016

People naturally tend to expect the next one to be even bigger and better and more widely attended than the last one. The Tour is Coming! Introducing Trade Wind Event’s break out 2016 American Windsurfing Tour. The same people who presented the hugely successful 2012, 2013, 2014 & 2015 Pistol River Wave Bash, will be a driving force behind the annual American Windsurfing Tour. The infamous Pistol River Wave Bash becomes the second stop on the tour. The sailing season is in full swing. The swells of Spring are still hitting. The tides are auspicious. Look for the 2016 Pistol River Wave Bash to draw talent from Maui, all up and down the west coast as well as the east coast and hopefully even further. So if you have something else scheduled that week, you might want to start trying to get out of it now. This double elimination windsurfing contest will be run during the two best days of wind and waves, and SUP contests/events will fill any no-wind days or settle for the least windy mornings anyway. The Gold Beach Fairgrounds will lend us all the room we could possibly need for the opening and closing ceremonies, as well as provide complimentary camping for the entrants.  But keep in mind there is a limit of one hundred entries for the windsurfing contest.
