It was too hot to go heli-skiing that weekend in Alaska. The avalanche risk, they said, was much too high. 

They would have to break the hearts of their two Aussie clients who were full of stoke and desperate for adventure. Or would they?

This is Alaska, the last frontier, and this heli-ski company is determined to not let that happen. They decide to take them surfing instead. This is not something the company advertises, markets, offers, or has ever done before. It’s up to them to plan, organize, and facilitate this improvised adventure.

Any adventure that involves drinking instant coffee from cut-up PBR cans around a beach campfire is one worth having. And one worth reading.

Stories about living. Everywhere.
