It’s the end of another year—and a decade—and now seems to be as good a time as any to share my favorite things about surfing and being a surfer on the Texas coast.

Every wave rider has his or her own ideas about what makes surfing special to them. Here’s mine, with a decidedly Galveston flavor.

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