Heli-surfing Alaska again

By |November 4th, 2013|

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. Turns out there is this little machine known […]

Bore Fever!

By |July 3rd, 2013|

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. Bore fever for myself and our friends is  an obsession with chasing the the bore tide that has symptoms like 7hr drives to try and catch a single wave. Waking up at 4am for an early morning tide. Paddling till you feel like throwing up to try and catch back up to the wave after a wipeout.  Watching this video below it appears there is one individual who has come down with his own case of bore fever.

Surfing Alaska in January

By |January 31st, 2013|

It’s been a pretty slow winter for surfing close to home here in Homer, Alaska. The gulf has been lit up with nearly endless storms it seems, but as usual, access to the waves has been limited. Darkness, storms, freezing spray, strong winds and a tendency for hibernation all playing their part. I’m sure the surfers in Yakutat, Kodiak and Sitka have been getting their share this winter. […]

Alaskan surf weekend trip

By |May 20th, 2012|

Last weekend we took our beloved m/v Milo out for a quick trip to the Gulf of Alaska. The swell forecast was looking pretty good. But mostly, after working at home for almost a week following three weeks of non-stop wave hunting were feeling pretty desperate for some waves and a bit of boat time. […]
