Horace Caldwell Pier in Texas is a quite exposed beach/Pier break that has reasonably consistent surf. The optimum conditions for surfing are during the hurricane season. The best wind direction is from the northwest. Waves more likely to be from local windswells than distant groundswells and the ideal wave direction is from the southeast. The beach breaks offer lefts and rights. The quality of the surf isn't affected by the tide. When it's working here, it can get crowded. Beware of rips, obstacles, sharks and jellyfish.
