disappointed!! - We tried 10 days in a row. Nothing but slop, and a sketchy rock reef with plently of stuff to dodge. Last year we were in Yakutat. Plenty of fun waves, just need to watch the rips. I'd go back to Yakutat again in a minute. People were nicer and real. Lot of attitudes for marginal waves in Sitka.

Fickle at best - These photo's are from a very few days a year that this place even works. (____) is right, Go to a warm place if you want perfection. You always run the risk of slipping anchore while your in the water. Then you'd be stuck on the beach for who know how long. Don't come here if you even think you like it ez. Only come here if you want an adventure, have a big smile and have patience for those who can get out af often as they'd like. Again a smile is a must :) This is our planet and places like this need aloha!
