61º North on the M/V Milo

We were very pleased to have writer Matt Reed’s trip on the M/V Milo this ‘spring’ included in the May issue of ADN’s lifestyle Magazine 61º North.

It’s a great article that shows how much fun even those new to ocean sports can have on the Milo. In addition to viewing the article in the magazine you can view a slideshow with additional photos (by our own Scott Dickerson of course) from the trip, here.

We hope this gets you excited to plan your own trip – there is still time for you to join us this summer. Contact us today!

Summer in the Fjords

We consider the territory between Homer and Seward, Alaska to be our extended backyard. And there is no place better to spend the summer than out back. Here are a few shots from a trip through the Kenai Fjords this June. Thanks to Scott Dickerson Photography for the images.

The Endless Wave – Naish Kiteboarding TV in Alaska

Here it is, part II of the epic Alaskan Kite Adventure of Robby Naish, Kai Lenny and Kevin Langaree from earlier this year.

It was great fun to have guys of this caliber hanging out and showing off their skills. We loved seeing them up their game for Alaska!  Glad you get to enjoy now too.  Thanks Naish!

Naish Kiteboarding TV in Alaska

Loving Naish’s new Kiteboarding TV epsiode….Grinding Ice in Alaska (part I). The Milo is looking super great and it’s fun to see Kevin Langaree and Kai Lenny’s stoke and skills on display here in AK.

Looking forward to the next episode where Robby Naish arrives and adds his energy to the mix!

And whatever you do don’t miss our debut on the big screen tomorrow, Nov 1st at 7 pm in Alaska Sessions at the Homer Theatre.

Robby Naish, Kai Lenny and Kevin Langeree’s Alaska Trip

Check out the awesome adventure these world champion athletes had on their Alaska trip this fall. Of course Ocean Swell Ventures and the Milo helped them make the most of their time, getting them up close and personal with wildlife, glaciers and more (if not meteorites!?!).

Thanks to Stephanie at Steller Air for flying Robby Naish out to the Milo in McCarthy Fjord in style.

Surprise…the fall surf season has officially begun!

We are just back from 6 days on the Milo….a little quiet R&R for the Ocean Swell Ventures Family. Well, not too quiet! We managed to get a head high surf session in on all days but one (despite not planning for it) PLUS a big SUP activity and some boat projects. We were also reeling in the halibuts right and left.

Great waves, great scenery, great fishing, great eating, great SUPing. Epic. And it’s just the beginning. We are headed out tonight for another 3 days of surf along the coast between Homer and Seward.  Then we are looking forward […]

Surf Homer to Seward

Aboard the M/V Milo
August 16-20th, 2012

We have spots for five lucky surfers to join us: We will depart from Homer on the evening of August 16th, surf our way through the Kenai Fiords and pull into the Seward harbor early on August 20th.

We have been loving this bit of coastline and have it pretty dialed in. Surf our favorite wave discoveries along this wild bit of coastline, depending on what the swell and weather have to offer. Even a beginner can have fun on this trip but we’ll be looking for the best waves we can find too. […]

Surf & SUP Exploring in Alaska

The m/v Milo arrived in Seward, Alaska yesterday evening after four non-stop days of surf and stand up paddle exploration in the Kenai Fiords National Park and Gulf of Alaska. The surf was better than we had expected and we are stoked after discovering three new spots on this trip so far.

The photos in this post are from yesterday morning’s session which was clean and fun. The swell was a bit better the day before, but we were late finding it and only got a few good rides before a sideshore wind blew it out. There is a big storm […]

The Hunt Begins

In winter of 2010 the M/V Milo headed out for the “Alaskan Sessions” – a month long wave hunt along the isolated Alaskan North Pacific coastline between Sitka and Homer. The “Alaskan Sessions” began with 2 weeks of vessel preparations in Sitka. This was squeezed in between nearby exploration “sea trials” and surf sessions. Thanks to the numerous people, marine trades, and other service providers used in Sitka for their help and professional demeanor. By Mid-November the M/V Milo’s crew was all aboard, once again we fueled up, grubbed up and north we went.

Highlights of the trip were darn near […]
