Thanks for visiting MarineDreams Port A.  These photos were all taken in Port Aransas, Texas, with the exception of occasional adventures north and “down under” in New Zealand.   But,”Yes, there is surf in Texas!”;  sometimes there’s nothing better than catching waves in the warm gulf waters with your Port A buds.

    In one of your blog entries, you have video of a surfing outrigger canoe. The blog entry and beginning of the video seem to indicate that the canoe was made by someone you know.

    I am highly interested in making a canoe of my own and wouldn’t mind talking with someone who has made one. Is there any chance you could give me the builder’s email address, or forward mine on?

    • I do indeed know the builder. Dave Parsons crafted this vessel here in Port Aransas. I’ll send your inquiry along to him. Thanks for your interest. The outrigger is something special!

    Hello! I was out surfing a tiny kayak yesterday(march 9)at the pier and I noticed you were snapping some pictures. Don’t know if you got any of me goofing in the kayak but on the off chance you did, I thought I might ask if I could snag them. Thanks!
