A Texas-Born Water Lover

Yes, you read that correctly—I’m a surfer who grew up in the flatlands of Texas. As a kid, most of my days were spent dreaming of ocean waves, even as I was surrounded by grasslands and cattle. I became a bit of an anomaly in my hometown: the guy who surfed… but only during family vacations. The moment I caught my first wave, I knew this wasn’t just a hobby; it was a calling. As I rode the water, for those fleeting seconds, I felt a connection with nature that nothing else could replicate.

From Lone Star to Ocean Waves

While my roots are firmly planted in Texas soil, my heart has always been with the sea. Family vacations to the coast were my salvation and my surfboard became my closest companion. Those experiences not only shaped my character but fueled an unquenchable thirst to bring the oceanic lifestyle closer to home.

As soon as I had the freedom to do so, I made it my mission to surf every chance I got—whether it was during a gap year spent chasing waves around the world or weekend getaways to the nearest coastline.

The Birth of Waves Weekender

Waves Weekender isn’t just a website; it’s a community, a resource, and a labor of love. After years of immersing myself in the world of water sports, I realized that there are countless people out there who share my passion but don’t have the know-how or resources to make it a part of their everyday lives.

That’s why Waves Weekender covers all things water sports: from surfing and paddleboarding to wakeboarding, scuba diving, boating, and even good old-fashioned swimming. Whether you’re a seasoned pro or a complete newbie, there’s something here for you.
