A seaplane or boat are best to access most of the good spots in Alaska. GNARLY conditions and locals. Was there in 1992 and got hassled by a couple of California ex-pats. Check out a spot called "Graveyards". Good water quality and waves, but no easy access. Pack out your trash and watch fire safety and be careful of the BEARS! No kidding, they are HUGE and SCARY if you are stupid enough to F**k with them or their cubs. Pack a warm wetsuit and a thicker than your normal board. Lots of power in the wave, don't underestimate it or it'll kick your ass. Be adventurous and score empty barrels.
