Why do you surf in Alaska?!
In my search for some better way of answering this question I came across a San Francisco State University study that seemed applicable. Surfing in Alaska is not cheap, easy, or normal, but we love it and without a doubt, it makes us happy. Look at Mike in the photo above. He’s not just smiling because […]
Why do you surf in Alaska?!
With so many mysterious miles of coastline in Alaska how and where do you even begin searching for good surf set-ups? Our favorite tool – a helicopter with an externally mounted cineflex camera. The best tool, definitely not the cheapest. Fortunately in Scott’s work with ZatzWorks as a camera operator he spends endless hours flying around Alaska. When he’s not […]
Fall of 2014 found us exploring the coastline off the westernmost portion of the Alaska Peninsula, scouting for waves. And finding them. We were pleased to be joined by Dan Malloy, Patagonia Surf Ambassador and Sean Carr of FCD Surfboards.
Scott Dickerson Photography captured a lot of great images for them, here are just a few:

It’s been a strange and busy winter here in Alaska. We had a nice little summer vacation in January. It was so warm in Homer that I was doing yard projects on a lawn of green grass.

It was about sixteen years ago that my friend Justin and I started bodysurfing in the wind slop hitting the beach in Homer, Alaska. We couldn’t drive, we didn’t have our own wetsuits, we shared a single hood. Our parents would drop us off on the beach and pick us up shortly after hypothermia was settling in. After a few […]
Dreams do come true. Sometimes more than once.
There’s plenty of times in any Alaskan surfer’s life where you catch yourself daydreaming about floating over this mountain range to check the surf, landing on that tiny beach and paddling out for a session, skipping the 12 hour boat ride around the Kenai Peninsula. Turns out there is this little machine known […]
