- Man-made danger (buoys etc..)
Surf is good at Brodies and halfway to condos (to the right).
Besides the occasional homeless person, Stewart Beach is completely empty. It is the cleanest stretch of beach in Galveston and does not have the jetties normally found throughout the other spots.
It is surfable roughly half of the winter and warm and flat in the summer. Pack your longboard.

stewart beach - if you catch the waves on a good day its still not very fun when its flat i just go fishing.

2 bad you can't surf here - This spot is by far of the best spots for it to line up in Galveston. Defined sandbars and no jettis to worry about. Too bad they only alow Beach Patrol to surf there because the beach is protected by a city ordinance outlawing surfing and all other fiberglass marine crafts.Solution-Get a BZ soft top long board to carve up the giant swells.
