Some people may not know it, but Texas has some great beaches, especially for skimboarders. We’re going to go through some beaches that all skimboarders have to go through before they get too old and leave this world.
Corpus Christi / Padre Island National Seashore – This beach is located just off Padre Island in South Texas. This beach is huge and is over 70 miles long and is a great spot for skimboarders. It is not very developed and has a huge amount of nature. This beach is also a great place to camp. This park also has large dunes and sand. This place is also famous for windsurfing.
Galveston Island – This island is 27 miles long and over 3 miles wide. This island used to be the home of Native Americans. This island is also where the largest American natural disaster ever recorded in history occurred. 6,000 people lost their lives in 1900 due to a hurricane. There are some beaches to skimboard, but above all it is a great place to visit due to its history.
Mustang Island / Port Aransas – This island is located southeast of Corpus Christi. This place has very interesting landscapes and great beaches for skimboarding. This island is 18 miles long and looks almost like a strip of bacon from the air.
South Padre Island – This beach has been a popular vacation spot for many years due to a resort on the island and its pretty beaches. South Padre is a barrier island, which means that it is a relatively narrow strip of sand that runs parallel to the mainland coast.
Anyone who lives in Texas or the surrounding states knows how popular Corpus Christi is and how wonderful the beaches can be. Skimboarding and summer are just around the corner.
Skimboarders, wax your boards and get ready to hit the waves, summer is here before you know it.
