  •  Used to live on SPI and nearby, all my kids (6+ / 0-)

    spent much time there. You had to teach 'em and watch 'em very closely. We (most) all surfed and Hobie catted.
    A tropical storm or hurricane anywhere in the GOM can kick up some awesome surf.
    I wadefished for many years from Boca Chica to PINS, and the currents in the guts between the bars could give you a fight. You could usually get to the second bar, but just sometimes to the third if you bounced, been knocked over by currents before. And then there were those 'things' that bumped into you...

    When there has been a steady prevailing wind (SSE), or a norther, those nearshore currents do get going (and it holds offshore too, eventually helps form the GOM Loop Current). Moves a lot of sand too, an everchanging environment.
