 Access

Fly to Adak on Pennair or Alaska Airlines. Rent a jeep. Drive on road north past lagoon towards Loran Station. If it's working, you'll most likely have to paddle out from further inside the bay... it's rarely possible to make it out from the point unless it is barely breaking. Very long paddle, best at dropping or slack tide when currents are gone. At rising tide you have to be extra determined to make the paddle out on a big day. May be possible to launch a jetski from inside bay, but as of yet there are none on Adak.

 Additional Information

Big-wave spot on north shore of Adak island, has been compared to Waimea Bay Hawaii meets J-Bay. Extremly long and can hold giant swells. Needs to be at least 8-10 feet before it breaks. Too cold and crazy in winter and spring. Must try to get good weather in the early fall, or a N swell in summer... but summer very foggy. One of the few legitimate big wave breaks in the Aletuians.

Atmosphere

September/October you have the best chance of good weather and swell. For experts only,and very cold. Wrap-around spots on the E side, and spots in town have smaller surf for the less hardcore. This is the Final Frontier, there's no doubt 'bout it..

- I love Alaska after visiting and I want to go back and surf sometime.

Secret's out....... - I surfed this back in '87 on a home made board with my friend Ziobro (crazed polish hooligan), had natives shoot at us because i don't think they knew who (or what) we were. Only breaks when it's huge.
