Add a New Surf SpotRegional Overview
Alaska will never suffer from a crowded line-up, it's simply too remote. Despite a number of high quality beach, reef and point breaks. You are more likely to be dropped in on by floating ice than a travelling pro and a spirit of adventure and camaraderie amongst the local surfing population remains strong. The 33,000 mile (53,108km) coastline sounds like it would offer unlimited options - which for the number of surfers here might well be true - but in reality most of the coast either faces the wrong way or is shadowed by islands. Surfing is focused around specific areas such as Yakutat which possess a Pacific swell window and the water is warmed by Kuroshio and Oyashio currents which bring up warm water from the south. Sea temperatures range from a bone-chilling 31°F /-0.5°C to a slightly less Arctic 60°F or 15.5°C in the height of summer, meaning you will rarely be out of your 5mm suit. Weather varies wildly here so travelling surfers be to be prepared for all the seasons in one day.
