I'm. Getting back into surfing after 11 years. Yea tyrant ex husband grounded me. Anyway I always surfed either Surfside or Gtown. Gtown is 45 minutes or more from me depending where I go. And as much as Surfside is the love of my life it's gotten crowded not to mention takes me 1+ hours to get there so I usually have to get a room. I'm a single mom on a budget so I can't always do this. This past summer I stayed with some peeps on High Island no one ever talks about it so never considered surfing it. It's 30 minutes from me! Such an easy drive and so not crowded. I've seen some good surf in the spots I've stayed. I know there has to be some honey holes down there so start talking! any help is much apprec mahalo.
