Watch: Saranskaya Bay, Kamchatka
Gotta admit, Kamchatka's been on the wish-list for quite a while now.
Ever since I traced my finger over the rough, 1,250-kilometre-long peninsula north of Japan, I've always wondered what the surf might be like. It's so close to the birth region of enormous weather systems that bathe the entire North Pacific basin with groundswell - but is it too close?
Google Earth eventually opened a pandora's box of possibilities, and there's been a couple of surf trips over the years - including those of travelling longboarder/filmaker Cyrus Sutton - but every time, they've each left me wondering whether its potential will ever be truly tapped.
Here's another video to whet the appetite.
