Often dubbed the "Third Coast" by surfers, the Gulf of Mexico doesn't get bombarded by an abundance of swell like the East and West Coasts, but thankfully, nobody has told surfers in Texas that. Places like Corpus Christi, Galveston and South Padre Island have a passionate wave-riding community, and when conditions do come together, like they did here at the Packery in Corpus Christi, the surf gets plenty good.
