We all dream of the perfect wave, and in our mind we all have our own vision of what it could look like. But a perfect slab? What does that entail? Well first let’s look at all the elements involved. Remote location, no crowds, plenty of dedicated hours on google earth, cold conditions, booties, gloves, a hood and a rad crew to shred with. That dedicated outlook scored Chris Burkard and crew in the Aleutian Islands off Alaska.
Just look at the perfection and clarity of that water! Sure it's cold, obviously, but that slab is insane! The clarity and perfection you’d expect over a reef pass in the pacific tropical waters, not the far north pacific frigid waters around Alaska.
Got the adventurous spirit and desire to surf cold water perfection? Stock yourself up on a few fresh new sticks,
a decent wettie and some cold weather gear and go for it! You’re sure to experience a plethora of empty line up’s and perfect waves. Its well worth watching the Cradle of Storms series in parts 1 and part 2.
