About Matagorda

Halfway between Galveston and Port Aransas, the Matagorda peninsula produces the best barrel in northern Texas. This wave is made possible by the deeper waters of the Colorado River inlet channel, focusing the swell onto shallow sandbars. Corpus Christi/ Port Aransas is the modern hub of Gulf Coast surfing.
