Vans surf team in Alaska

Here are a couple of videos from Yakutat last fall when we were in LA. The funny part is every summer tourists get stuck in that exact spot. Also, it is about 7 or 8 miles out of town through bear infested woods so you really don't want to be walking back without a rifle. One guy in town, ex Force Recon marine, was doing a run through there and had a bear charge him. He ended up 30 feet in a tree with the bear going crazy at the bottom of the tree, shaking, clawing and biting the base of the tree. He did 2 tours in Iraq and said that was the most frightening encounter of his life, bar none. Moral of the story, let people know where you are going and be careful where you walk and drive in the summer.
