Typically for us Homer, Alaska surfers we can plan on putting our boards away for a summer hibernation from about May till September. Call it El Nino or what you like, but things were a little different this summer. Two things were really different. We now have stand up paddleboards and are stoked to get out surfing even ankle slappers that hit he beaches in the summer doldrums. But, ankle slapper sup surfing aside, Homer was actually blessed with some pretty decent waves this summer too.
Yesterday, the last day of August, was a classic example of our summer surprises with nice glassy waves ranging from waist to chest high all morning. Then we had another smaller but still sweet little sunset session.
A few photos below to celebrate the end of summer and the beginning of our real surf season. May this be just the beginning. Please enjoy.
