Just got back from a week trip to Kodiak, we took the Kennicott ferry down from Whittier loaded with a truck, bikes, dogs, and camping gear. Rocked and rolled across the Gulf with (so they said) 32 foot seas and 50 knot winds, listening to the sound of the props coming out of the water all night
But the morning dawned sunny as we cruised into Kodiak and headed down the coast to the Pasagshak area. The surf was still very high from the previous night's storm.

We found a great place to camp overlooking the beach and set out to do some riding. I was on my Fatbike with 3.7 inch tires and my brother made a trial effort with 2.1"s which didn't work so great.

Low tide was the best riding, the sand was fairly well packed near the low tide line but loose and slow going toward the high tide line. At low tide it was easy to ride below the sea cliffs and rocks but we had to be careful to watch the tide so as not to get stranded below some gnarly cliffs and become shark food.

Had three days of great weather and enjoyed the beach riding and sea camping scene, then took my brother's 26 foot sailboat out to Spruce Island but that's another story. Anyway, great trip.
