For its next stop, The Big Wave World Tour sets out for massive swells at Nelscott Reef. Local big wave surfers, Eric Akiskalian and Keith Galbraith are invited to compete. One hopeful surfer, Will Skudin, is looking to join the tour for the first time with an invitation. Will Skudin grew up in Long Beach, New York in a family of watermen and women. Him and his brother, Cliff Skudin, started Skudin Surf: a prominent surf school with multiple locations in the New York area. During one of his camps, Will gets the call that the Oregon contest is on and he is invited as a second alternate to the tour. He heads out to Lincoln City to meet up with Eric and Keith to get some knowledge on the waves he will be surfing. They train and surf, getting some practice in before the competition. It is the morning of the competition and after hours of waiting, Will gets the word that he is officially in the competition. Alex Gray is also competing for the first time. The competition is broken down into three rounds with only the top three best advancing. Will makes it all the way to the finals along with Grant Baker, Alex Gray, Anthony Tashnick, Kohl Christensen, and Shawn Dollar. Alex Gray wins the championship. In a physical depiction of the spirit of brotherhood, love, and respect within the surfing community, Alex chooses to split the prize purse between the final heat surfers.
