Best to paddle out on the left side of the reef when it is big then paddle behind the reef into the zone once you are far enough out.
No crowds at all, there is like 10 people in town who surf.
Its really good in winter, when it gets faces 5ft+ then it starts to get really clean and barreling.

Who is still surfing in Kodiak? - I left Kodiak in 2001 to go to Hawaii, but I'm curious who is still surfing it. I knew of only a handful of people: Ryan Murdock, and Grant Walker were the crew I went with, then there was Luke Nyemeyer and his brother Nathan and a few of their friends, then I heard the Roses got into it a bit. But is Mark Blakeslee still around? I know he's got a lot of friends that do it too. Anyways, I'm going to be going there to surf over spring break I think and I'd be happy to meet up with anyone that rips on a shortboard and ride some new spots if you know of any besides the standard boneyards and mill bay and spruce cape and three mile area. And someone tell me how the surf has been.
