Scott Dickerson, right, and Tom Pogson take advantage of the big waves last week to do some kayak surfing at the mouth of Beluga Slough. Pogson, a paddling enthusiast, said he was out on the water for about two hours Oct. 9. "You really need a sustained southwest wind," he said of the conditions needed for good surfing. "When the swell comes in and it blows long enough and hard enough, it's pretty darn good."
