What you'll do
Theres a dream spot where you can surf the river year around day or night! I'd love to show you. It's about 30 minutes south of Austin and we need to time it right to have the river to ourselves so going early morning or later in the day is best. I'm flexible. My tour description will say its a 4 hour trip but its more likely we'll get carried away and stay as long as you want. Theres even a street light if we want to stay after dark and the water is spring fed meaning its the same temp year around! I've surfed during the rare snow before and it was fine! The water level does change the wave so this trip is not ideal if we've had heavy rains the week before so keep in mind it could be canceled on a sunny day if the river is raging from some floods a few days before. How it works: It's a standing wave so you're surfing in place. Its like wakeboarding without a boat. We can use a tow rope to guide you in but the good people don't need one! Surfing is pretty tough to get on your first try and the wave is not always perfect but you can always boogie board worst case. I'm a good coach and can get in the wave and help you get up! This is one of the best swimming holes around.
Some friends call me water boy. I love finding all the best water holes around. I'm always scuba diving, cliff jumping, surfing, snorkeling, or kayaking around Austin so I know all the best spots. I've got alot of gear and I know the rivers well. I have probably taken more than 100 people to this wave and showed them the ropes. I used to live in Austin without a car but bought a car just so I could go here everyday for awhile. Whether you're surfing or boogie boarding this wave I'll make sure you have a blast and that we're safe doing it.
Carpool optional Let's discuss the drive down. The listing shows my house but the surf wave is about 30 minutes south.
"surf" and boogie boards It's really a wake surf board

You should be a strong swimmer if you're planning to do this activity. Its a fast moving section of the river but it only takes 2 hard strokes to get to calm water on each side of the current.
