Go to Corpus Christi cross the JFK Causeway and follow that road till you see a sign that says turn left to Bob Hall Pier. There is a lot of blue stuff by the turn. It is also known officially as Padre Balli Beach Park. Beach parking permits are widely available, but there is a paved lot next to the pier where parking is free.

- Bob Hall is not for the weak hearted, you will get ragged on even if you are the best out there. Best thing to do is take it,shut your mouth, and show your skills.

LOCALS - I WENT TO COLLEGE IN CORPUS. WAVES ARE GOOD. HURRICANE SWELL IS HEAVY. LOCALS ARE GOOD SURFERS BUT ARE SOFT. I RAN THEM OFF THEIR OWN SPOT.
