Near the mouth of the Kenai river in Alaska there was some foaming going on in the waves, it made for some nice drops and stringy looking things flying around the inlet waters coming ashore.

Little dots rising up like miniature hot air balloons. This is about as big as the waves normally get here, unless there is a big storm. Now if you wanna see some really big awesome waves check out @rossfletcher posts, especially this one and this one two!

I was looking at the foamy stringy things and scrolling down and then... Hey, that's me! Lol.
Thank you so much! There's waves somewhere in Alaska.I would love to see it πŸ˜€

I went and looked.

Is that red thingy where you are? There's waves down south of there on the coast facing the open ocean. Glaciers and fjords. Looks totally impossible to get to? And nobody there either? A boat out from Seward... pretty crazy!

Thank you ❀ @rossfletcher! I'm not to far from the red dot.
Would have to take a boat to the big waves, the end of the
road is in Homer. Over by Seward you can see a little bit
bigger waves, otherwise its a long drive to Valdez to
see the sea lol! :-)

Those big fjords won't let waves in. I had never really looked up close at Alaska to see where waves could be. So much of it is super inaccessible wow!

Right, but if there is a big storm and certain earthquakes those fjords will
have incredible waves!
The quake of 1964 and the tsunami that hit Seward.
Lituya bay landslide 1958 that made for record high megatsunami waves!
To see most of Alaska you need a boat and plane, I've heard it
takes a few lifetimes to see it all! :-)

I have seen video of guys surfing glacier waves. When a big chunk falls off, it makes a wave, Totally crazy.

Tsunamis are way out of hand. Yikes

to tell you about it when I see you left me a vid! Thank you for
them both, wow on the glacier surfing! lol

Haha! Yes. I want to surf that one! The glacier surfing is really scary. I wonder how often anybody does that. Have you ever seen glacier chunks falling like that? I would like to see it. πŸ˜€
