Hello ,
My name is Eddie Cantu your Galveston Surf Coach!
I have grown up on the Texas Gulf Coast for most of my life and for over 13 years lived in Central America doing Mission work as Pastor and Missionary
Living on the Texas Coast has taught me to love the water, fishing and especially surfing.
I am now 54, I love sharing about the Creator of all things, my missionary experience and about surfing, teaching others to love the sport I have grown up loving.
I greatly respect the ocean and teach other to respect our ocean and Galveston beaches.
I have taught my kids to surf and hope to pass my love for surfing to my grandchildren and all my students who come and take lessons.
I work full time and I do my best to book my guest on my afternoons from 6:30 to sundown in the summer.

I am a blind person, disabled, and,I was very impressed with Eddie’s instruction. And he was clear and concise and made me feel at ease regarding the process of being able to stand up on the board when I caught the waves. His patience and thoughtful instruction allowed me to get up on the board on more than one occasion and I was very successful at catching many waves. I would highly recommend Eddie for anyone because he is so careful and clear with his guidance. I now feel comfortable and going out on my own.

Wow!! Hubby and I had an amazing time learning from Eddie. He made our experience so memorable and customized it to us... even our 3 furry babies got to watch us have a blast. Will definitely do it again. #Happy #SummerDays

Eddie is awesome! Really positive and GREAT directions. My 2 teens and I did this together and Eddie, along with one of his friends who came along to help, got both my kids surfing waves within less then an hour. I personally never made it to my feet but Eddie never stopped cheering me on and guiding me through what to do or how to adjust. I did finally get onto both knees and rode some waves that way. Honestly if it hadn’t been for such amazing and uplifting coaches I wouldn’t have kept going back out after I would fall. They made both my kids and I feel like we could totally do this and it was so worth every wipe out. My kids can’t stop talking about the experience or Eddie or his friend, David. We will absolutely take more surf lessons from these guys anytime we find ourselves in Galveston.

I purchased this as a gift for my girls and Eddie exceeded my expectations! He was very kind, considerate and well organized. My girls had a great experience and came away with a new appreciation for surfing! They would love to do it again sometime and he was perfect! It’s hard to please older teenagers and they were ready for an excuse to cancel. But I know they are glad they didn’t!!!

Eddie spent so much time with my daughters teaching them to surf! They had a great time and learned a new skill in a magical location. I unequivocally endorse this experience!
