Hello all. First time poster. Midwest surfer. No not the great lakes. I travel. New to surfing this year still not very good since I was by myself trying in crap surf. I got up after second wave but they were shot lived atlantic waves. I'm headed to Texas this week for a while and if the surf is no good I'll head to SoCal once i'm done (forecast looks very bad) Anyways, I think it might help if I had someone pointing out what I am doing wrong. So if anyone is Surfside or in Galveston that won't mind letting me know where, when and how to surf better.

I would really appreciate it. Whats water temp? bring my suit? booties? This should hit my email so I will reply. Thanks
