Stand up Paddle Surfing Alaska

Mike McCune first time stand up paddlesurfing Alaska!

The surf report between May and September in Homer, Alaska is typically pretty bleak. It’s actually sort of a wonder that we get waves here at all considering that Kachemak Bay is completely sheltered from any open ocean swell. In the Summer this is excruciatingly apparent.

The tide has changed here though, with the launch of the Surf Alaska stand up paddlesurfing division bringing a sudden influx of stand up paddleboards we’re not planning on leaving our wetsuits to dry for 3-4 months this summer. We have a new motto we repeat with great satisfaction as we look out at the shin high wind chop breaking on the Homer Spit – ‘we could surf that’.


Surf Alaska is in business

It’s July fourth here in Alaska this morning –  Independence Day, a historical date to celebrate. And we have good reason for celebration, there is a tiny little swell hitting the Homer Spit. It might not be enough to ride on a surfboard, but we’ll be out there having a ball on the four new Surf Alaska stand up paddle boards.
