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:

We are heading back out west […]

Surfing Yakutat, Alaska 2008 – part 3

By |December 16th, 2008|

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. I know there was plenty of surfing, and along with it plenty of rain– so the photographer left his camera in the tent and caught up on some surf.  This was good, because on the first morning in October we were excited to see our first and only sunrise for the week. The six days of waiting for a glimpse of the mountains and a chance at some classic Yakutat surf photos finally paid off. No complaints though, waiting out the rain clouds is not bad when it means surfing for 6hrs a day, and when the pay off looks like this.

Surfing Session – November 20, 2008

By |November 28th, 2008|

If only they were three times their size. Jake went out and rode a few on this snowy day. I got halfway into my wetsuit, but on closer inspection couldn’t get excited enough to finish that chore so I took a few photos and came back to work.

Alaska surfing photos from November 2nd 2008

By |November 20th, 2008|

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 – 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 […]

Anchor River surfing

By |October 16th, 2008|

It hasn’t really been THAT long since we last had waves. Only a few days really. But yesterday afater my brain had gone to mush and any chance of productivity had left me, I left the office and went to try out an idea that had been brewing for a while – tie a line to a bridge, jump on […]
