From Houston, take 288 to 528 then to 332. When you get to 332, keep driving straight, don't turn at Surfside, where you're going straight you will finally see a sign on Quintana, then it will tell you were to go from there. It's close to Freeport.

If it’s big at surfside and really choppy it would be cleaner at Quintana but just a little smaller but it’s worth it.

- Bumped by three sharks in less than a hour. Rarely will I be that desparate to surf there again.

Yall are dumb - Ok kids... Quintana has a lot better ocean floor than surfside because it is really shallow for a long way out there. Also, if the surf is blown out at surfside then its guarenteed to be good at quintana because of the big levy blocking excess onshore wind flow. And at surfside you usually have to pay someone to drive your car on the beach anyway.
