As promised, this post is the meat and potatoes of our last fly-out surf trip to Petrof Glacier, Alaska. Check out the first half of this adventure, which is just getting to this remote beach, in my last post – Surfing Petrof Glacier 1.8.10 – Getting There. With the short daylight of the Alaskan winter we only had four hours to enjoy this swell so let’s get on with it! Below is a nice selection of photos from the day. I photographed for a few minutes, surfed for a few hours, then photographed for a few more minutes. Hope you enjoy the show.
ps: Stephanie is worried that there are no photos of her shredding at Petrof and everyone will notice that she was on the trip but not out there ripping. I tried to assure her that all the other surfers reading this would remember when they were just learning and cut her some slack. For a beginning surfer, we know that success is defined by not giving up after your first three poundings accompanied with a 40ºF flush. If you can endure that and still surf till you are shaking with hypothermia then nothing will stop you!
