It’s been an incredible winter of surfing here in Alaska. The storms just keep coming and somehow we keep being in the right spot at the right time. I’ve been busy gathering the stories and action for our upcoming Surf Alaska video series. I was hoping to have the first episode together by the new year, but with so much […]

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.

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.

Watching this video below it appears there is one individual who has come down with his own case of bore fever. […]
These calm mornings, sunny skies and gorgeous evenings have really got me fired up for the summer SUP season. Enough so that I have updated our entire Surf Shop here at SurfAlaska.net this evening in order to get you the best, most current info on what we have to offer gear and rental-wise. […]
Yep. We’ve got it pretty awesome. Not a wave goes by that we don’t appreciate.
This 4 day jaunt into the Gulf of Alaska to visit a few of our favorite waves was much appreciated when it suddenly arrived. It was a trip so last minute that we couldn’t even get our best surfing buddies to join us. Lucky for us Josh Skoglund of JGS Concepts rallied to come along to document. Mike and Scott were so busy surfing all by themselves there would have been no evidence otherwise! […]
May 8th – 12th, 2013 Alaska Sessions and representatives from the M/V Milo will be attending the 2nd annual San Diego Surf Film Festival.
