Alaska Mainland Surf Forecast map for predicting the best wave and wind conditions across the region. For surfers, the map shows the most powerful swell tracking across near-shore open water and not the peak waves experienced by boats out at sea. Move your mouse over the ocean swell symbols or the surf breaks on the coastline to see a more detailed surf forecast including wave period and wind conditions. The forecast updates every 6 hours and most live weather reports update every hour. You can animate the Alaska Mainland Surf map or show live wind and wave conditions as reported from wavebuoys and local weather stations.

Alaska Mainland Surf Breaks

Mainland Alaska has a few decent breaks on offer, with Yakutat offering the best of them and with the largest surf population in Alaska. With a mixture of reef, point, and beach breaks you can be assured you won't be fighting for a wave up here. Accommodation and facilitates are quite limited, so it's advisable to suss out the local areas online if your planing on making a trip as it can also get expensive. A winter wetsuit is needed all year round.
