Founded by two graduates of Texas A&M’s Corpus Christi campus, Padre Island Surf Club caters to all levels of surfers, from first-timers to tube-riding competitors in the Texas Gulf Surfing Association. Instructors maintain a 4:1 student-to-teacher ratio during youth surf camps, tailoring their lessons to campers between the ages of 5 and 17. The team also organizes girls’ and women’s camps and after-school programs that reinforce basic math concepts by requiring students to count the sum total of each day’s high-fives.

When they aren’t building campers’ self-esteem through lessons that become more challenging with each new skill mastered, instructors turns kids loose to have fun with kayaks and standup paddleboards and even schedule trips to the Texas State Aquarium. Padre Island Surf Club’s educational efforts have earned them sponsorships from top industry companies such as Billabong, Kustom, and Surfline.

On fall nights, Play Extreme Sports & Store's staff transport people a half-mile deep into the woods of a 30-acre outdoor entertainment arena and dare them to escape on a trail haunted by live actors. Twelve to 15 victims climb aboard a 2.5-ton military truck for a seemingly inconspicuous ride along the haunted trail each evening between 7:30 p.m. and midnight. At the epicenter of the paranormal playground, the truck mysteriously shuts down, abandoning riders, who must test internal compasses to find their way out. Explorers creep past trees dappled with severed heads while trying not to awaken sleeping pieces of possessed farm equipment. Costumed inhabitants draped in their finest layers of pond scum and spanish moss emerge from the shadows to cordially frighten wanderers frantically scouring the area in an attempt to find the exit. Face irrational inner fears by confronting scary props, spooky audio effects, and shadows that eerily mimic every move of the people they follow.

Under the new management of Tom Lawless, the 2011 Hooks—the Double-A affiliate of the Houston Astros—look to proclaim bat-swinging dominance in the Texas League. Baseball supporters can claim seats at Whataburger Field, which is built to reflect the feel of a classic ballpark and can hold about 7,000 Hooks fans and three times as many foam fingers. Two wristbands adorn arms and grant access to extracurricular excursions in the Driscoll Children's Hospital Kids Zone, featuring a rock-climbing wall and a chimp-free jungle gym. Along with being able to see the USS Lexington and the Texas State Aquarium from inside the park, fans can enjoy breath-robbing views of the Harbor Bridge and mascots removing their comically oversize heads to observe the National Anthem. After the game, fans can trade their baseball caps for 10-gallon hats as they take in a concert by Tejano rockers Texas Tornados or Green River Ordinance, a quintet of aspiring environmental attorneys moonlighting as talented musicians.
