While we might still have a few more cold snaps along the upper Texas coast this month, warmer days are just around the corner.

That’s great news if you’re not a fan of the colder water that’s found its way to Galveston beaches recently. On Thursday, the beach water temperature was a chilly 55 degrees, and many surfers are donning at least full wetsuits and booties — sometimes even hoods and gloves — for their sessions.
