Surf breaks you’ve never heard of (even in Hawaii)
Surfers love touring around the globe to surf new waves. As we approach International Surfing Day this June 20th, we have compiled a list of waves in the U.S. that most surfers have never heard of, and even includes a wave here in Hawaii. First on the list is Yakutat, Alaska. While Yakutat might be one of the coldest places to surf in the world, it is also one of the most picturesque. Beaches are lined with towering Sitka spruce trees while you surf in the shadows of the snow covered St. Elias mountain range. For the second unknown spot we travel to New York (yes, we said New York!) to Long Island. On the southeast corner of the island immortalized in F. Scott Fitzgerald’s “The Great Gatsby” is the sleepy town of Montauk. Home to a treacherous left breaking wave called Alamo; this spot is not for the inexperienced. Last (but certainly not least) is Pine Trees, located in Hanalei Bay, Kauai. This wave has bred a generation of world class surfers like Titus Kinimaka, Dustin Barca, Roy Powers, Bruce Irons and the late Andy Irons. Set in perhaps the most gorgeous areas of Hawaii, you will find epic waves almost comparable to famous North Shore on Oahu in this sleepy town.
