 Información adicional

Galveston Island has several spots to surf. The Galveston Seawall from the 61st Street Pier to the Flagship Hotel Pier offers many surfing spots. Short rock groins protrude from the Seawall every few hundred yards, offering protection from currents and holding the sand in place for sandbars. The surf can range from small, blown out chop to long peeling lines hundreds of yards past the groins. Usually there is a dumping wave right at the end of the groins. Paddling out next to the groins in the rip tide makes for an easy paddle. The Flagship Hotel Pier is probably the best spot in Galveston, offering long right and left peaks off the T-Head of the Pier. 37th Street Jetty offers a steep ledgy left on the same swell. Down by the San Louis Hotel you will find slower beachbreak waves and the 61st Street Pier offers a good outside pier take off with a jetty protected inside bowl. Then there are miles of beach break south to San Louis Pass, a very dangerous spot with strong currents and many sharks as all
of Galveston Bay empties into the Gulf of Mexico here. The water is very shallow in Galveston as the Continental Shelf extends out for miles and miles here. Galveston rarely gets true ground swell and is usually best with a longboard.

Galveston is a great place to learn to surf and is best with a longboard. However, on certain swells, good dumpy spots can be found for shortboard use. Galveston offers something for everyone.

HELP!!! girlgromtobe - I've been trying to surf for 2 months now. My bf has been doing it for years and keeps putting me on his longboard. i hate his longboard and feel like i have no control over it. i take his shortboard out and have a blast but am still having trouble. i need something in between to get started. i dont want anything clunky. im 5'4 and 115 lbs!

Who is the Mexican? - Who is that Mexican guy that hangs out at 37th street all day either surfing or by his truck. He has his name tatooed down his back in old english. Pretty typical of him to do so but he thinks he owns the place so my buddies kicked his skinny ass one day then he started crying about his salt water soul being hurt...
