The Last Frontier – Alaska’s well earned title certainly rings true when it comes to surfing the far north.

Not surprisingly, Surf Alaska receives countless emails from surfers with frozen gills wondering if there is any hope for them here in AK.  It became very clear there was need for a publication that covered the basics.  Alaska – the guide to pioneering surf in ‘The Last Frontier’ is the answer to these questions.
