Surfing The Alaskan Coastline

Aleutian Islands, AK

Separating the Bering Sea from the main portion of the Pacific Ocean, the Aleutian Islands are one of the world’s most dramatic landscapes. Here, active volcanoes snuggle up to Aleut villages and agate beaches. Of course, the real star here is the water, where clean waves and clear days beckon the world’s best surfers, including Alex Gray, to this place known as the “Cradle of Storms.” Find out more about photographer Chris Burkard’s adventures in our Q&A interview and get his photo tips, best beach picks and more.
