Fall sunrise session

By |October 26th, 2012|

This fall has been not only sunny and gorgeous but has also offered its share of good surf in the Gulf of Alaska. While I can’t say we surfed it all, we did do our best. This particular morning in the gulf I had several good days of 4+ hr sessions behind me, the stars were out, and the tide was right for a sunrise session so I jumped in the water with the camera. Mike McCune, Matt Lukin, and Jeremy Cerutti were enjoying some nice waves as the sun peeked over the mountains. […]

Alaskan surf weekend trip

By |May 20th, 2012|

Surfing the Turnagain Arm Boretide. Watch the video below!

You’ll never know unless you go. This thought often makes us get in the car for the 3.5 hr one way drive to Turnagain Arm in search of the often elusive boretide. The tides are very predictable, the wave – not so much.

It’s always a gamble with the countless variables that change the wave, and then there’s the wind.  Ever since last fall we have been trying to find the monster wave we saw near the town of Hope. So far this year we are yet to see it. The serpent seems to be sleeping.

On one fine day this summer we did score a sweet, glassy, twenty minute ride with some nice clean faced sections. It wasn’t the double overhead wave we were hoping for, but it was good times. […]
