Surf Galveston

Often referred to as the “Third Coast,” the Texas surf scene has a lot going for it. Galveston’s beaches allow great access to the waves. With over 32-miles of beaches, there are many places you could go to catch a wave. Surfers tend to flock to the jetties, located at 37th, 47th, 51st, and 61st Streets. Another secret among surfers is riding the waves from large tanker ships, as Galveston has plenty of those coming and going to the many ports on the island.
