Sunrise SUP session on the spit

By |April 8th, 2011|

Nice little sunrise session on the Homer Spit this morning. Not too much to get excited about, but some fun rides on the stand up paddleboards. I had the GoPro camera with me out there to catch the insane action.

Winter surf session video

By |February 22nd, 2011|

Kachemak Bay, Alaska was recently the recipient of some kind of a weather miracle. There was a wind swell coming across Cook Inlet that kept up for five days! That alone is quite a phenomena, but to take it another step into the realm of dreams – a steady offshore breeze was whistling along every day in Homer.

One sunset session […]

Slab GoPro video

By |February 8th, 2011|

If you’ve been following along here you know that we have been taking the m/v Milo out from Homer to discover new breaks on the outer coast of the Kenai Peninsula. We just returned from our fourth trip out there yesterday. This morning I put together a few clips I shot using the GoPro video camera mounted on my SUP paddle. This footage is from our third adventure out to the Gulf and our second time riding this slab wave we’ve named Pop Ups.

Surfing the Turnagain Arm bore tide

By |September 7th, 2010|

Just a quick iphone photo/video post here as we are getting ready for an even bigger bore tide ride today.

Yesterday five lucky stand up paddleboarders caught the Turnagain Arm bore tide. Thanks to local SUP pioneer Jeff Hoke for guiding us to an incredible one mile ride on the knee to chest high wave. Conditions were perfect with a light […]

Alaska fly-out surf adventure video

By |August 7th, 2010|

There’s a knee high wind swell hitting the Homer Spit today. I’m inside working on the computer to that all too familiar tune of water dripping down the rain gutter just outside my window.  I can’t complain though, yesterday evening I paddled my stand up board for about 4 hours and easily caught my subsistence limit of red salmon as the sun set over the calm and rain free waters of Tutka Bay.

Today I’m excited to share a short video documenting a stellar trip to Petrof Glacier earlier this year. It’s high definition so please go fullscreen and let it load for a couple minutes to fully enjoy the 5 minutes of reverie.

Foggy video of the Petrof Glacier wave

By |April 12th, 2010|

It’s just a little clip from Stephanie’s iPhone. It doesn’t even show a set wave. I’ll bet it still makes you squirm in your seat. The video is from our last fly-out surf trip to Petrof Glacier, Alaska when we surfed all day in a thick fog and thought we’d be making an unplanned overnight stay. The plane, to our […]

Slushy Surf in Alaska

By |January 6th, 2010|

Surfing in Alaska we get to see a lot of unusual things. These waves in Anchor Point a few days ago were cool, really cool, almost frozen, like a salt slurpee. I was mesmerized, in a desperate effort to try and capture this sight, despite the flat light, I shot some video and photos:

We thought about trying to surf these, […]

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 […]
