Searching for surf in Alaska

By |February 17th, 2015|

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 on the job shooting for clients he keeps himself busy looking for the next big wave discovery. […]

Exploring the Wild West

By |January 21st, 2015|

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:

Aerial surf video from a Cineflex + RED EPIC

By |February 19th, 2014|

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. The 7mm mittens seemed way overkill and everyone was coming to visit the beach.  Well, that’s over now. Resume normal programming of winter […]

Surf Alaska video series launch

By |November 4th, 2013|

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 […]

Heli-surfing Alaska again

By |November 4th, 2013|

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 […]

Bore Fever!

By |July 3rd, 2013|

There is a condition we call bore fever.  I’ve been infected with it over the years, though my symptoms have definitely lessened after finally catching the elusive giant wave last year after a multi month effort. Bore fever for myself and our friends is  an obsession with chasing the the bore tide that has symptoms like 7hr drives to try and catch a single wave. Waking up at 4am for an early morning tide. Paddling till you feel like throwing up to try and catch back up to the wave after a wipeout.  Watching this video below it appears there is one individual who has come down with his own case of bore fever.
