Glacier Surfing in Alaska

Friday, August 17, 2007

Daredevils and famous big wave surfers Garrett McNamara and Kealii Mamala made history last week when they become the first people to ride a wave caused by the melting of Child's Glacier in South-Central Alaska.

McNamara and Mamala, one on a surfboard and the other riding a jet ski, brace themselves at the foot the Glacier as the thunderous roar of the crashing ice falling into the sea begins.

The creator/producer, Ryan Casey, "discovered" the wave in 1995, while on location shooting in Alaska. Then after finishing his last film, Quest, a documentary on big wave surfing, he showed Garrett the wave... that was six months ago. So after a short scout in June, he went up in August to film this.

Summer in Tokyo means vacation time but if you can't afford to get out of the city, you can always go to the incredibly overcrowded Tokyo pools! A swimmer could die in that crowd and no one would know until the end of the day when everyone gets out!
