Although the Texas Coast has a reputation for small, choppy, inconsistent surf, the popular breaks at The Pleasure Pier and the 37th, 47th, 51st, and 61st Street jetties tell a different tale. And, there’s always the option of riding a few tanker waves which were made famous after being featured in the movie Endless Summer II. Check out the surf scene dedicated to riding the wakes of large oil tankers as they move through the Galveston shipping channels.
Hurricane season is surfing weather. That means August and September. But don’t surf during an actual hurricane! When a storm system enters the Gulf of Mexico, or right after a frontal system moves through, there will be days of long, glassy, sizable surf that rival other hot spots.
