Galveston Island - Texas' Own Piece of Paradise

Galveston Island was once the largest town in Texas prior to the hurricane of 1900 that wiped out almost the entire Island. Today it's an eclectic mix of high rise hotels, rejuvenating neighborhoods, charming beach homes and cheesy tourist attractions.

Only 40 miles from downtown Houston, Galveston Island makes an easy day trip or weekend getaway for Houstonians and is a popular summer weekly vacation rental destination for Texans all around. The beaches are not the prettiest you'll ever see but the warm water, gentle waves and beachcombing make it great for surfing, long walks or just playing in the waves with your kids.  Top surf spots on the island include Pleasure Pier (Flaghsip) 37th Street Jetty and 61st Pier.

Surf Shops in Galveston
Southern Spears Surf Shop - Right on the seawall at 61st street. Easy location to stop by as you arrive on the island and need to stock up on surf gear or clothing items.

Surf Specialties - The Islands oldest surf shop still in existence. They carry a full line of boards, clothing, rentals and also offer Tanker Surfing Charters
