The dark stormy days of winter make for good times to reminisce on surf trips past. Here’s a fun one I stumbled across in the archive. It was a late winter trip with a good group of surf buddies aboard a commercial fishing boat owned and operated by one of our local crew. […]
It’s been an incredible winter of surfing here in Alaska. The storms just keep coming and somehow we keep being in the right spot at the right time. I’ve been busy gathering the stories and action for our upcoming Surf Alaska video series. I was hoping to have the first episode together by the new year, but with so much […]
The forecast looked good. Strong west winds should send a little swell across Cook Inlet to hit the beaches within our reach from the road system on the Kenai Peninsula.
