Ocean Swell Ventures, LLC recently purchased the former Fishing Vessel Milo with the purpose to explore, discover, and access the unlimited surf and adventure potential of Alaska’s 34,000 miles of coastline. The M/V Milo is a 58’ Alaskan “limit” Seiner design, originally built to withstand the rigors of fishing the North Pacific Ocean.

This was so much better than working this weekend. In fact, better than a lot of things. I’m so glad I got invited out. I hope I was on my best behavior, so that I get to come again. Meanwhile, you know who to call if you want to fly to waves. Thank you so much, Mike and Scott. Love your work. Steph
Adventure is what you make it…Thanks to the Milo crew for crushing it! Love the surf platform—until next time!
AK on water! It’s a first for me, but definately not the last! Thanks so much, Mike, Scott, Wendy, and the “Milo” for such an insane four days. It truly was awakening.
Cheer and thanks,
Chase aka E. Bag
Good times! I hope to see the Milo crew in other obscure locations around the world at some point. What a trip. It would have been a blast even without the surf, but that was just the icing on the cake! Thanks again, Nico
Good crew = Good times.
Thank you guys so much for helping us explore where our imaginations wandered. Surfing in a bay of snowcapped mountains has been added to my most beautiful days list. Quite a hidden world of gems you guys have yourselves.
Keep in touch and hope to make a much longer deep exploration happen on the awesome MILO…Boomkanani!
Way to push it in the last Frontier! Incredible spirit and people on the Milo…many thanks and look forward to getting back aboard. Mike, Wendy, Dickerson…you da best!!!
To Mike, Wendy, Scott and the MILO. Thank you all for such an amazing trip and even better start to the “Brothers On the Run” journey. I will remember our adventures forever. Thank you for sharing your life experiences with us. Much love, E. Jack
What a trip, trip of a lifetime! The Milo is ready for anything, the Humbug knows how to ride waves, and the crew’s the s*%”t! Thanks for everything, never had such a good surf seshion–AK love.
Way to start us off right!
Brothers on the Run
Alaska to Chile
Thanks Mike, Stephanie, and Scott so much for an unforgettable trip. It’s been such a blast hanging and surfing with you guys. I’ve learned a ton and hope to make it back up here someday soon. If you are ever down Santa Barbara way, give me a ring!
Thank you! Trevor
A dream come true for me–to surf Alaska! Even better to do it by boat. The Milo and her crew are world-class. Big thanks to Capt. Mike and the Dickersons for their genuine Alaskan hospitality. The voyage was F U N! Thanks again, Michael
