I am also seeking donations for an important environmental project and funding for future ecological projects-click the below
image to see the site-I have done the work on this project over the past 40 years entirely by myself without support from
the community or the state.
If anyone that used to fish or surf or beach comb at the old Surfside Beach,TX
in the 60s might have any photos of the beach and the old Fishermans Wharf-
the Jetties Area and other areas-please contact me at
I also recommend wearing a good pair of old athletic shoes
or shoes made for walking in the water areas
to prevent cuts and stings-
there are a lot of sharp shells along the beach
that can really ruin a nice day at the beach!!
Surfside Jetty after remodeling by the
Corp of Engineers-
I used to dive for tackle
off of these rocks-
I remember my Grandmother
waking me up at 4am
to go fishing here
and across the channel
at the old Velasco
Jetty before the jetties were remodeled.
A word of warning-
there are a lot of Portugese Man O War Jelly Fish around these jetties
and the sting is very painful!!
After a storm
they have been known to cover the beach!!

This was my playground almost every day spring
I loved every minute of it even if

With the Ship Channel right there the air can get to be pretty
bad here at times!!

You can upload photos from your smartphone to photobucket.com and they will store them for free!!
you can see the effect of tide and current erosion on Surfside Beach Texas-the beachfront used to extend for several
hundred feet in front of this beachhouse.
I own the copyright for a beachfront jetties network design (to control this erosion) that extends from the mouth of
the Brazos River to the mouth of the San Luis Pass area.
I believe that it is the force of the current from the creeks and bayous whose entrance was closed off and their course
was changed, and is being forced to flow through the ship channel,
that is causing this erosion effect-these creeks and bayous need to be reopened to allow the current to follow
its natural flow path!!
As it is the force of the current is actually flowing under Surfside Island and is washing it away!!
Bluewater Highway that follows the coastline to Galveston from Surfside Beach area has washed out several times in the
past due to this effect!!
While swimming in some areas along the beach I have observed the flow of the current emerging from under the beach with

A word of advice from someone who has had a lot of experience with car and truck breakdowns at the beach-always keep both
a set of jumper cables and a good battery booster pack in the trunk of your car or in your truck toolbox-or under the seat
when you are camping out at the beach or gone fishing on the jetties!!

weapon if at all possible!!
