From barren islands with sheer cliffs plunging into the sea, to vast glaciers grinding and calving off into frigid waters, to primordial old-growth temperate forests wreathed in mist, this northern landscape is never dull. It's also home to a kaleidoscope of wildlife including whales, bears, eagles and king-sized mosquitoes. There are problems to overcome in exploring these remote shores, not least the cold, rain, fog, and fiercely unpredictable weather. Escaping the full brunt of mutant Aleutian depressions, blasting swell and gale force winds into the Gulf, is the greatest challenge. Fortunately, the contorted coastline provides the shelter as bays, channels, estuaries, and fjord-like coves pock the islands and mainland, bending, refracting, and grooming unruly swells into more organized and manageable shapes. Understandably, most surfers will congregate at a handful of easy-access spots. Meanwhile, the intrepid searcher should be rewarded with quality waves in solitude.© 2014 ~Bob D Kemp~
