 Additional Information

Port Aransas can have turquoise blue water and has several spots to surf. The long jetty at the very north end of Port Aransas is good on NE swells as it can break the wind chop. The Horace Caldwell Pier has good sandbars and can be surfed on either side with a nice bowl section on the South side of the Pier. Port A can hold well overhead surf on the outside during large storm swells, if you can make it out.

Fun stuff - I went out on a small 3ft day, it was fun, the sandbars produce some good rights and lefts. I heard it holds big swell, i will check that out next hurricane swell when i am on the way to SPI's Dolphin Cove

Gay Surfing Alliance - My name is Don Murphy, I am a local here in Port Aransas now. I moved here several years ago from Surfside. I am the President of a new Surfing Alliance for Gay and Lesbian surfers. We are an overlooked group and we feel that we should be recognized. We organize several surf trips a year to mainland Mexico, and are looking for new members to join our group and participate in our adventures. If you are gay and would like to join us please give me a call at 361-749-5398.
