Exploring the Wild West

By |January 21st, 2015|

Fall of 2014 found us exploring the coastline off the westernmost portion of the Alaska Peninsula, scouting for waves. And finding them. We were pleased to be joined by Dan Malloy, Patagonia Surf Ambassador and Sean Carr of FCD Surfboards.

Scott Dickerson Photography captured a lot of great images for them, here are just a few:

Surfing Yakutat, Alaska 2008 – part 3

Jake Beaudoin walking into a timeless surfing scene, Yakutat, Alaska.

As you probably figured out, this is the third post reporting on a 7 day surfing trip to Yakutat, Alaska. Part 2 was the story for Sept 28th. Something happened between that day and October 1st. Or, what I mean is nothing happened, with the camera that is.

No surf for a few days now. One of the symptoms of no surf disease is a strong desire for waves. This can lead to the destructive habit of looking through surfing photos which ony worsens the condition.

Back to November 2nd for me. Those were the goold old days. Misery loves company, so take a look at a few more […]

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 […]
