Every June some of the world’s best windsurfers come to Gold Beach for a high-powered tournament known as the Pistol River Wave Bash, a major event on the American Windsurfing Tour (AWT). It’s held in the surf off Meyers Beach in Pistol River State Park, just south of Gold Beach. The naturally occurring combination of wind and surf here make this area one of the world’s premier locations for this unbelievably exciting sport, and the dazzling natural beauty of the surroundings makes it absolutely perfect. The event attracts champions from all over the U.S., the South Pacific, South America, Europe and the rest of the world.
