Imagine if you could practice drop back drills with Drew Brees. How about have Roger Clemens help you with your four seam fastball? Work on your golf swing with Ben Crenshaw? In the world of professional sports, these situations seem like fantasy. In the world of surfing, they are reality.
Morgan Faulkner is one of the best known surfers in Texas. He grew up in Port Aransas, and first got on a surfboard at about age 8. Now, at the ripe old age of 25, he holds 2 national surfing titles, 23 Texas state titles and numerous other titles and pro/am championships from the West Coast, East Coast and Gulf Coast. As an amateur, he was a member of the United States Surf Team, representing the US in surfing around the world, and is now competing as a professional in the ASP World Qualifying Series.
Morgan now resides in Hawaii but every summer he returns home to Texas to share his stoke with fellow Texans through his Quicksilver/Roxy surf camps. Faulkner is committed to instilling in each student the love of the ocean and the sport of surfing that he developed growing up in Port Aransas.
Designed primarily for ages 5 to 18, summer surf camps are held at the in Nueces County IB Magee Beach Park, next to Morgan’s home break at Horace Caldwell Pier in Port Aransas, in Nueces County Padre Balli Park near Bob Hall Pier in Corpus Christi, and in Galveston at Galveston Island State Park. Campers will be divided into age and skill levels and will be encouraged to progress at their own pace, in order to build self esteem and confidence in their abilities and comfort in the ocean.
