The life we live- video of surfing Alaska by boat

By |May 3rd, 2013|

Yep. We’ve got it pretty awesome. Not a wave goes by that we don’t appreciate.

This 4 day jaunt into the Gulf of Alaska to visit a few of our favorite waves was much appreciated when it suddenly arrived. It was a trip so last minute that we couldn’t even get our best surfing buddies to join us. Lucky for us Josh Skoglund of JGS Concepts rallied to come along to document. Mike and Scott were so busy surfing all by themselves there would have been no evidence otherwise! […]

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. […]

Surfing Kodiak between storms

By |November 28th, 2011|

As reported in my previous post, we had a pretty tough surf search around Kodiak Island early this winter with the m/v Milo. The storms were on par with the scenery, relentless and rugged. In our first few days around the island we did get to score a couple sessions when the wind momentarily settled from the near constant gales. The photos here are from a session at a spot that a couple locals suggested we check out. Gotta say, the locals were a lot friendlier than the waves we found! check out some of these angry looking faces.

Boat trip to Kodiak Island. Scenic. Stormy. Surf.

By |November 27th, 2011|

It’s no secret that Kodiak Island can be a windy place, but three weeks straight with winds gusting over 50mph? That just doesn’t seem possible! Well, fortunately we all lived to tell the story of enduring a non-stop series of epic winter storms while on a surf trip around Kodiak Island by boat.

Surf in Alaska – October 2nd

By |October 4th, 2011|

Just back form another surf adventure on the m/v Milo. The highlight was a great 6 hour session at a point/beach break that offered 30+ second rides with some sweet steep sections well overhead. The photo above was a set peeling when I first pulled up in the humbug (our 14ft RIB wave scout). I’ll try and put together a […]

The rewards for weathering hurricane force winds on our last m/v Milo expedition were aplenty. Check out this tube ride that Nicolas Sutil, a visiting surfer from Chile, scored on the third day of our exploration.

Surf & SUP exploring Alaska

By |September 4th, 2011|

The m/v Milo arrived in Seward, Alaska yesterday evening after four non-stop days of surf and stand up paddle exploration in the Kenai Fiords National Park and Gulf of Alaska. The surf was better than we had expected and we are stoked after discovering three new spots on this trip so far.

Sleuthing an Alaskan Slab

By |January 28th, 2011|

Iceman on a freshly discovered Alaskan slab

This was our second trip with the m/v Milo out to the Gulf of Alaska from Homer. Swell was forecasted to be something between seven and fifteen feet. The first day was windy, the swell was strong but it took us a few hours to discover a break that was sheltered from the wind coming in off the Gulf. No photos of that spot, too much excitement to get on some waves for me and try out the 10ft boardworks SUP on some real waves.
