This looks soooo fun! Tankers create large surf and generate some of the longest lines imaginable. The waves in Galveston bay roll on and on. Thigh muscles begin to burn far before the end of the wave. Surfing these waves takes a little stoke and a lot of endurance, and for the Galveston locals tanker surfing is a mainstay of their town. This pasttime is an important part of surfing tradition and history.
