    I don't boadyboard much, but when I do, the face of the wave looks huge when laying on the stomach. Galveston has some good bb swell, do to "how the wave breaks so nice on a good day." Surfside has a more slower longboardable wave that kinda rolls rather then barreling over. What part of Texas are you talking about? It gets bigger the further south you get. I have surfed 16 footers in south padre. some would say thats to big. Texas gets big but never really TO BIG.

    Its funner here in Surfside, but G-town has a nice shore break. We have no beach here right now and GLO is dumping a **** ton of sand within 3 months. there going out to our 3rd sand bar with sand and its deep out there so, shore break heaven this spring and summer. I think Surfside is going to be better this year then it has been in the past 10 years. Matagorda is kick ass but sharky, port-A and Corpus is the best in Tx. South Padre is very nice but I have problems with ppl starting shlt with me and others that are not from there. I say "go to south padre but watch you back". Those guys watched Point Break to many times.

    Here is a cool link to some Texas surf videos. You might be able to make up your mind by watching a few of these videos.

    If I was you I would bring as much respect to the packery channel. Don't mess around with those dudes over there, and stay out the way! Them locals are loco. There also the coolest ppl in tx so make sure you bring respect with you.
