Zeto Point breaks along the south-west side of the headland, east of City Beach. The final bend in the headland creates fun, consistent lefts with enough swell. The surf at Zeto Point rarely exceeds double overhead. Further inside, where the clam lagoon opens on the south side, is a semi-rivermouth break better for longboarding.

 Additional Information

A surprising amount of swell gets in here and City Beach, given how protected the bay is. This is because the Bering Sea is a very rough place in general, and swells refract and bounce off opposing headlands, making their way into the protected lees. The east side of Clam Lagoon picks up more swell, with various semi left point/reefs reeling along the large boulder strewn lagoon berm. As far as Loran Point, you can watch the big swells roll in, but I've never seen it surfed. That would be a terrifying proposition.

Atmosphere

Beware of coming in September without a prior car or ATV reservation. Adak City gets overrun by caribou and geese hunters then, and they rent out all the vehicles.

General

Zeto Point, like City Beach, is situated in the bay and is a safe place to surf, but needs a bit of swell to get going. However, the south opening of Clam Lagoon always has something to longboard. The bridge is closed to vehicle traffic, so you will have to walk a half a mile from the main road. The best break yet surfed on Adak is called White Alice, and is on the west side near the WWII declassified radar facility. It's a rocky spit with excellent rights, and picks up a lot of swell from various directions. Supposedly 'Boot Bay', on the far south shore, gets good on big south swells, but it is a nature preserve with no ATV's allowed, so would require a long hike in and out, or long and hazard-fraught boat ride down through the pass. Be careful around here, it's easy to find yourself on Mother Nature's bad side. It's foggy 60% of the time, and usually raining the rest of the time, with gale force winds being common. Beware of sinkholes in the muskeg, and rommel spikes in the ground. Have fun, just don't die trying...

Sitkin Island - I found this photo on a navy guys website from his time stationed on Adak in 1970-71. This exact photo from Bill Linhart's web site was listed as taken on Sitkin Island

Zeto Point - Correction: Zeto Point breaks on the south west side of the headland. If you go to the east side of this little peninsula, there's a beachise that picks up the swell far better and can get rreally good. Just hike over the headland in the direction of Great Sitkin volcano. The beachie will be offshore on a westerly wind, while Zeto point will be offshore on an easterly wind, with both places clean on a northerly wind as well. Many options right here. Keep your bloody mags and pros "new spot discoveries" out of here please.
