Yesterday’s wave

By |January 26th, 2011|

We just got home this morning from a couple days of surfing in the Gulf of Alaska. Monday was a bit breezy and kept us exploring the coastline aboard the m/v Milo for a while before we found a nice punchy wave with an offshore breeze.

Surfing Petrof Glacier from the M/V Milo

By |January 5th, 2011|

I couldn’t count the number of times we have been floating in the lineup at Petrof Glacier daydreaming about having the M/V Milo anchored up right there with us.

Keep dreaming my friends, they do come true!

Iceman surfing Point Carew in Yakutat, Alaska.

The storms are back. A sure sign that winter is coming here in Alaska.

A good day to put together a new post for SurfAlaska.net.

This summer Surf Alaska follower Steve Howze made a trip to Yakutat from his home in the greater Anchorage area in search of swell. He was kind enough to answer a bunch of questions for me and share what he learned about surfing Yakutat, Alaska on his trip.
