  • Bay Adventures Sportfishing
    Appearances on ESPN?s Redfish Cup and the Gulf Coast Troutmaster circuit are only a sample of the multifarious accolades that dot Captain Steve Auld?s resum?. A paramedic, licensed US Coast Guard captain, and professional angler, Steve is also the owner of Bay Adventures Sportfishing, where he leads as many as 200 fishing trips per year. Armed with included gear, fishing groups set out on Galveston Bay?s salty waters in search of catches such as speckled trout, redfish, and flounder. Groups are also privy to Steve?s special instruction and secrets garnered from years of professional experience, ensuring they don?t make newbie mistakes such as getting too attached to a fish and eloping with it. In addition to his Galveston Bay jaunts, Steve also leads specialty trips such as flounder gigging and guided duck and dove hunts in Mexico.

  • Wake Nation Houston
    The manmade, 12-acre lake at Wake Nation Houston was designed for wakeboarding, but there's not a single boat on it. Instead, a system of cables and pulleys whisks wakeboarders along the placid surface in much the same way towropes pull astronauts to the moon. Aided by supportive instructors, beginners learn the fundamentals of the sport with the use of a practice cable on a smaller practice pond before taking to the main lake. More advanced aquatic acrobats, meanwhile, soar off floating jumps and slalom around obstacles. Despite its name, the park isn't exclusively for wakeboarders. Its cables can just as easily haul visitors on kneeboards, water skis, and wake-skates. Water-shy guests can watch their friends from an observation deck, browse the pro shop, or nosh on snacks from the concession stand.

  • YMCA
    At each of its 31 area locations, the YMCA of Greater Houston pursues a mission to bring health, wellness, and personal growth to communities. Kids leap into activities ranging from swim lessons and youth sports to a teen Youth & Government program that stirs up confidence and leadership abilities in students, preparing them for mudslinging student-council campaigns. Zumba, ballroom dance, and Les Mills group exercise classes shake up adult workout routines, as complimentary childcare frees up parents to pursue fitness goals. Meanwhile, adult sport leagues such as basketball and racquetball result in friendly competition and hyper-literate team names inspired by obscure philosophers.

  • Southern Spears Surf Shop
    Though the native Texan and native Australian who founded Southern Spears Surf grew up oceans apart, their love of surfing the very waters that once separated them now unites them. Both have traveled the world, from Costa Rica and Fiji to Indonesia, in pursuit of the perfect wave. At Southern Spears Surf—“spear” is Australian slang for surfboard—they cater to fellow surfing devotees with a generous selection of short and long boards. To kit-out surfers, they sell surf-inspired clothing for guys and girls, as well as gear like wetsuits and wax to keep boards slip-free while eliminating the body hair that naturally grows from them.
