GIRDWOOD, Alaska —Mother Nature put on a shownear Anchorage, and it hadnothing to do with Venus andthe sun.The largest bore tide of thesummer arrived in TurnagainArm on Tuesday evening,drawing hundreds of peopleto highway pullouts south of Anchorage.It also drew a few surfersand kayakers hoping to takeadvantage of a real wave inAlaska.“It was fantastic,” saidsurfer Sue Ives of Anchorage.“It was a bluebird day. Thewater was glassy. I guess thisis supposed to be the biggestbore tide of the year, so it wasa pretty great ride.”The bore tide is an actu-al tidal wave, said MichaelLawson, a meteorologist withthe National Weather Servicein Anchorage.“The bore tide is a truetidal wave in the sense thatit’s controlled by the tide andis largely due to the gravi-tational influence of the sunand moon.”Bore tides happen all overthe world, but Anchorage’sTurnagain Arm and KnikArms are the only places inthe United States where theyoccur regularly, he said.That’s due to the orien-tation of Turnagain Armand the shallow, narrow ter-rain along the strip of waterstretching about 25 milesfrom Anchorage south to theresort town of Girdwood.Bore tides happen everyday here, Lawson said, butwhether there’s a visible waveassociated with it depends onthe weather and the exactnature of the tides.“One thing that makes thisa predictably large bore tide isthat we just had a full moon,and right now, the moon andthe sun are in alignment,”Lawson said.Lawson said those gravi-tational forces work to pullthe tide extremely negativelybelow what the average meanwater level is at low tide.“When the tide goes allthe way out, the tide furtherup the arm is still going to becoming out when the new tideis coming in, and where thosetwo bodies of water clash iswhere the wave is created,”he said.Local media had beenalerting residents to the pend-ing large bore tide sinceMonday.“Today, everybody is tell-ing us about it on the radiocause it’s supposed to be a bigbore tide, so we’re hoping it’s35 inches,” said Anchorageresident Ellen Franklin. “Thatwould be awesome.”There was no immedi-ate measurement of the boretide. The National WeatherService doesn’t track it,but the state Department of Natural Resources earlier thisweek predicted it could be4.1 feet.Nearly every space andplaces that weren’t meant forparked cars were filled alongthe pullouts along the sce-nic Seward Highway. Peoplebrought lawn chairs, bin-oculars and cameras for theevent.Some climbed down therocky beaches to outlyingrocks for better viewing.That caused at least one prob-lem, KTUU reported thatthree men became trappedon rocks after the tide camein and had to be rescuedby a boat manned by theAnchorage Fire Department,which said the men were inno danger.Several others, like Ives,donned their wet suits andtried to catch the wave.Ives estimated her ride onthe wave went anywhere froma quarter- to a half-mile.“A nice long ride, longenough that my legs started tofeel a little tired,” she said.She also wasn’t bummedthat this is apparently thelargest bore tide of the sum-mer, and plans to surf again.“It just means that maybenext time there’ll be fewerpeople out here, and it will benice and quiet,” she said.Hubert A. Youngpeter, 85,of Delphos, died Tuesday atVan Wert In-Patient HospiceCenter in Van Wert.Arrangements are incom-plete at Harter and SchierFuneral Home.
