The Turnagain Arm tidal bore in Alaska may be a regularly occurring phenomenon, but that doesn’t mean the prospect of falling or not catching the wave is any less anxiety-inducing. Locals drive from far and wide to surf the place that produces a maximum of two waves per day, at roughly 11 hours apart. It’s an unruly little wave that’s nothing more than a wall of whitewater, but it’s a leg burner that makes up for lack of shape with distance covered. Not to mention the community that surfs the Turnagain Arm might be the most stoked surf community on the planet.
