James Fulbright's presentation

James Fulbright making his presentation at Tuesday’s Houston Maritime Museum meeting.

James Fulbright was 10 years old when his mom brought him to Galveston to surf for the first time.

He remembers traveling in their car over the Causeway, seeing Galveston Bay off to his left and asking his mom if that’s where he was going to surf.

Stephen Hadley is a longtime surfer who lives and works in Galveston. If you have an idea for this column, email him at
