Galveston Paddleboard Center
Though the native Texan and native Australian who founded Galveston Paddleboard Center 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 Galveston Paddleboard Center—which is located within Southern Spears Surf Shop, 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.
“Very friendly and helpful. Neat little shop.”
