Who Should Surf These Waves?
With a variety of Puget Sound waves to choose from from tugs, freighters, wind, motor boats and tidal rapids, there’s plenty of options for surf boards, SUPs, kayaks, surf skis, outriggers and body boards.
Why Surf Inland Waves vs the Coast?
I surf both! But Puget Sound waves give you a chance to surf more often and stay in surfing shape if you can’t get to the coast regularly Some boats put off epic waves which sometimes are better than small or bad days on the Strait. Options like Deception Pass and high wind downwinding gives you options 5 minutes from your home whether on the Sound or a bigger lake.
