You know how they say “everything’s bigger in Texas”?
Well it’s just not true for the surf.
Someone recently asked me about the surf in Texas, so I decided to write this blog post about it.
Although some people optimistically say there is “year round surf” in Texas, most of the quality waves happen around hurricanes.
The waves in this video below actually don’t look half bad (and the guy is using a mouth mount!)
But you’re more likely to find these kind of waves in Texas:
If you have 17 minutes, this documentary is actually pretty interesting:
Texas Tanker Surfing
When the ocean is lacking swells, big tanker ships are always bringing in steady wakes.
If you are a surfer, this probably looks boring to you. But if you lived in Texas, I’m sure this would be more fun than not surfing at all!
Grab your longboard and your best buds, and catch some party wakes.
Jamie O’Brien is the epitome of a good time. If you haven’t seen his Youtube series “Who Is JOB?” yet, you should def check it out!
He focuses more on the fun than his surfing performance, but it only seems to benefit him.
In this episode, JOB and the crew head to Texas as part of their road trip, and they get into some mandatory shenanigans.
So while Texas might not have high caliber waves like the West or East coast, it’s still not hard to have fun out in the ocean!
