 Access

Rent an ATV from donwtown Adak, or hike in. It's near the White Alice radar station, and breaks off the north spit. Picks up lots of swell, but be careful of strong currents. If you get hurt bad out here, or sucked out to sea, you will most likely die.

Atmosphere

Lots of caribou hunters out here in September. Other than that, you won't see anyone. Respect the area and please keep this place out of the big surf mags.

General

Cold, isolated, but a regularly good wave. Probably the best and most consistent spot to surf on Adak, as far as sensible access. it is still isolated though, and gnarly, unexpected weather can kill the unprepared within a half hour. This is generally a serious (i.e. - potentially consequential) surf trip, more like an expedition really. Gets good year-round, just beware of weather and potentially deadly surf conditions.

Photos - I came across the 2 photos listed for "White Alice" in a YouTube video. It was done by a military guy who was stationed there in 1987 to 1988. The YouTube thing was a bunch of still photos made into a movie. Those photos where part of the movie but were not identified, so they may of may not be White Alice.

No TRESSPASSING - While you can access the lagoon openings at Shagak Bay ('White Alice'), stay out of the actual radar facility, which is off limits and extremely dangerous due to a big PCB spill that has never been fully cleaned up.
