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.

Alaskan surf weekend trip

By |May 20th, 2012|

Last weekend we took our beloved m/v Milo out for a quick trip to the Gulf of Alaska. The swell forecast was looking pretty good. But mostly, after working at home for almost a week following three weeks of non-stop wave hunting were feeling pretty desperate for some waves and a bit of boat time. […]
