Or, for the terminally dull, spring cleaning.But Adam Holzer and five of his Anchorage mates in the loose organization called DOOM/love figured it was too early to give up on snowboarding, so they headed to Whittier on a sunny Sunday in May.One result is a gorgeous two-minute video, as the sun-dappled Passage Canal looms in the background and a half-dozen boarders jump and carve turns down a short course built with their shovels, their sweat, their vision.   “It’s one of our destinations of choice,” Holzer said of Whittier.  “We do fish out there in the summertime and navigate the waters.  There are limitless ideas.”Read more: Forget spring, there's still some awesome boarding near Whittier

Cliff Murray is one of the founders of the online community of diving enthusiasts called Alaska Underwater Adventures (AKUA). When he dives, he typically travels on the “Bottom Time” boat operated by his dive shop, Dive Alaska in Whittier. In this video, Murray explores The Shackle, a dive site in Resurrection Bay. The spot is a favorite of experienced divers and students alike. Murray says The Shackle “is frequently visited by sea lions, and hosts an array of sea life including several species of rockfish, halibut, lots of different sea stars, and at least two different species of anemone.”Murray uses a basic GoPro and underwater lights for his amateur filmmaking efforts, with spectacular results. “The colors pop because of the really bright lights that I have. Without 5000 lumens (total combined), everything has a bit of a grayish/greenish tint to it,” Murray said.To submit your video to Alaska Dispatch News contact Tara Young at tara(at)
