Doing the Dew

By |June 15th, 2015|

Thanks to Moniker Media and Mt Dew, we were able to do the Dew this spring on a surf trip into the Gulf of Alaska.

With Scott as captain of the M/V Milo, TALENT and production support he was in heaven to also be able to have his friends join him for the epic week.

Alaska really delivered with conditions and a […]

The psychology of surfing in Alaska

By |April 16th, 2015|

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 […]

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 […]

Exploring the Wild West

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:

We are heading back out west […]

Aerial surf video from a Cineflex + RED EPIC

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 […]
