On this private surfari adventure you’ll see the new SpaceX Starship at the rocket launch pad at Boca Chica, the Rio Grande river mouth as it enters the Gulf of Mexico at the Texas/Mexico border, and surf at the Boca Chica jetties! This is a 4 hour surfari; the drive is 1 hour each way from South Padre Island, with an hour of surfing, and an hour to visit, photograph, learn about local history, and enjoy the sights! 1-2 persons.

The SpaceX / Boca Chica / Mexico Border Surfari is a customizable half-day adventure. We can leave pre-dawn, midday, or return at sunset. Your choice depending on availability.
WHAT DO I BRING?

WHAT DO WE LEARN?
You'll be surfing at Boca Chica Beach at the Texas / Mexico border! We teach you everything you need to know to get started, basic surfing and paddling techniques, surf etiquette, wave knowledge, water safety and rip current info, and more!
• Lessons are taught in shallow water, no students are allowed in water deeper than they can stand up.
• Safe Soft Surfboards are used for all lessons, with leashes for safety and soft rubber fins. (The most common cause of injury while surfing is from being struck by a hard surfboard.)
• Rachel and Gene are highly experienced ocean lifeguards, lifelong professional level surfers, and water safety experts, you couldn't be in better hands! We consider it a privilege and honor to take your child into the ocean, and take the responsibility seriously.
• You will be falling repeatedly in shallow water, no diving head first off your board!
• ANY PRE-EXISTING MEDICAL CONDITIONS such as asthma, allergic reactions, knee neck or back problems, epilepsy, recent surgeries or heart conditions must be mentioned before lessons, you may need your doctor's permission, and we can tailor your lesson to fit your personal needs.
