Padre Island Surf Camp was founded by Josh Harper who first learned to surf in Corpus Christi. His passion for surfing kept him in Corpus Christi until he graduated from TX A&M Corpus Christi. Surfing has taken Josh all over the world surfing and managing all of the surf camps for Billabong, the largest surf company in the world.
Josh also co-founded Waves of Impact, a surfing organization that was formed to introduce individuals facing exceptional challenges in their lives to the unexplainable
wonders of riding waves. This includes wounded veterans, autistic children, and many other children and adults that could benefit from a day at the beach.
“I would have given anything to have a surf camp in Corpus when I was a kid! Surfing has brought me so much happiness and so many positive memories, and I am so blessed to now be able to share my passion with others, especially in Corpus.” – Josh
