Sign up for surf trip invites

By |January 29th, 2011|

Surf Alaska, as the name suggests, is all about surfing in Alaska. We are regularly doing whatever we can to get out on the water. Often this involves organizing trips where we invite friends or strangers that we think would like to join us.

Together we can more easily overcome the logistical and financial challenges of accessing the waves of Alaska.  We are excited to finally be putting together a database that allows us to invite everyone who’s interested easily and quickly.

SUP surfing Turnagain Arm Boretide – Aerial view

By |January 12th, 2011|

A flat spell at your home break can quickly lead a surfer to reminiscing of rides had in bygone times.

How about that time we had it pretty good last fall?  You know, the sessions with 5 mile rides. The one where you could catch the wave right after breakfast and ride it till lunch. Foot cramps from doing so many turns on the standup board. . . .  That was pretty sweet.


Dreaming of a slushy Christmas

Merry Christmas to all.

The recent cold spell in Homer has coincided with a few great days of surf. The morning sessions have been cool. Heading to bed here on a cold Christmas eve dreaming of another slush session for tomorrow.

Surfing the Turnagain Arm bore tide

By |September 17th, 2010|

Stand up paddle surfing the Turnagain Arm bore tide in Alaska.

Still trying to catch up here in the offices of Surf Alaska after a week of bore tide fever. Not trying too hard though . . We are heading to the Kenai River this weekend with inflatable stand up paddleboards for an attempt at paddling / floating the entire length of the river. Should be gorgeous with the fall colors and the turquoise waters.

Fly-out surfing Petrof Glacier

By |April 26th, 2010|

The suspense was excruciating.

The swell forecast looked strong for three to four days over the weekend but the flying forecast was marginal. For the first three days the clouds were hanging thick around the Kenai Mountains preventing us from flying through them to our favorite fly-out surfing paradise in the wilds of Alaska. The morning of the last promising day of the swell also brought some hope for a flight.


Surf Session – November 2, 2008

By |November 3rd, 2008|

What a sweet welcome November gave us today! Sunny and gorgeous like the last few days, but this time with a nice little swell.

The phones were ringing this morning long before the sun rose- “Surf is up my friend, get ready for a 8am dawn patrol (thanks to daylight savings time we didn’t have to wait till 9am).

I spent most […]

Surf Session – October 27, 2008

By |October 31st, 2008|

The 27th, Monday, brought some surprisingly nice chest high waves to Kachemak Bay. The photo above was a quick snap before I ran down the beach with a surfboard, leaving the camera in the car for this session. The photo doesn’t really do the waves justice. First of all, I was too impatient to wait for a good set, and […]
