Intermediate to advanced
Can be competitive on the good days at the best peaks.
Dense lineup at the best peaks, spread out the farther from the jetty you get.
Fun peaks and a few barrels when there is swell.

Proximity to Houston shipping channel and runoff from Galveston equals often not the best water quality.
