Regulating


NE WIND 10 TO 15 KT. WIND WAVES 3 FT. W SWELL 10 FT AT 12 SECONDS.

Not trying to make light of anyone getting hurt...
But the real regulator of Tillamook Head showed up Thursday...

Surfers injured at Seaside Cove

Seaside volunteer firefighters responded to two calls to assist injured surfers at the Cove on Thursday. Both surfers were injured near Tillamook Head, where waves were especially high.

At 9:38 a.m., paramedics contacted a surfer at Tillamook Head who had apparently dislocated his shoulder. However, the surfer refused treatment.

At 11:13 a.m., paramedics again responded to a report of an injured surfer. They encountered several surfers carrying out another surfer along the Tillamook Head trail. The surfer apparently had been knocked against some rocks. He was entered into the county's trauma system and transported to Columbia Memorial Hospital.
