Yes, there is surfing on Kodiak Island. As one Hawaiian wrote, “Hawaii and Alaska are equal in beauty. I like to refer to Kodiak as Hawaii’s 9th island.”
Alaska has more ocean coastline than the entire rest of the United States combined. And Kodiak has what is probably the largest number of accessible surf breaks in Alaska, with most located north of the City of Kodiak.
But this is Alaska, so the water is, shall we say, brisk. The upside is water temps don’t vary more than about 10 degrees Fahrenheit, so there’s good surfing year-round. Anyone who’s surfed California in winter months, especially Ventura County and points north, will be comfortable in Kodiak’s water.
The main difference here is you’ll be carving waves beneath snow-capped mountains and soaring bald eagles. It can happen. In fact, it does happen all the time for the dedicated worldwide community of party people who love surfing Kodiak.
