Have you lived in Homer your whole ife?

Where Alaska - - Maps -

I’m 31, so I guess I’ve lived in Homer for 30 years. People al­ways won­der how I got into surf­ing. I al­ways won­der the same thing. It doesn’t seem like a nat­u­ral fit for some­one who grew up here. I guess all I can say is if you’re born with the de­sire to be in the wa­ter, you can’t get away from it even if you’re from Homer. found a kayak and started rid­ing waves in a kayak. It was ter­ri­ble for waves, and then I got a bet­ter kayak. My neigh­bors bought me a surf­board they found at a garage sale. I pad­dled out, got washed out, hit the rocks and the board broke into three pieces.

A photo Scott took of brother Fred catch­ing a wave near Yaku­tat was cho­sen by Alaskan Brew­ing Co. for the la­bel of its new Icy Bay IPA.
