We just got home this morning from a couple days of surfing in the Gulf of Alaska. Monday was a bit breezy and kept us exploring the coastline aboard the m/v Milo for a while before we found a nice punchy wave with an offshore breeze. Yesterday the wind was mellow and the swell was strong. The photo above is just a teaser from the slabby wave we found for our midday session. The takeoff zone was pretty small, the wave was pretty big, and the stoke was hot.

I don’t have a lot to show for the trip photographically, but I’ll try and put together a few more shots soon. It wasn’t easy sitting there on the paddleboard photographing these waves. It was spooky and I was pretty eager to get in there myself.
