Sponsorships for the 2019/2020 Season
The Texas Gulf Surfing Association (TGSA) is a non-profit organization, founded in 1988 to promote the sport of surfing and protect surfing resources along the Texas coast. It is the member-based governing body for amateur surfing in Texas and advances surfers to the USA and NSSA National Championships. TGSA provides an annual series of surf competitions with an emphasis on surfing progression, good sportsmanship, support of education, environmental responsibility and camaraderie among members. TGSA provides entry-level events for youth, points-rated competitive events, and pro/am and specialty events, and supports an All Star Team and scholarship program.
TGSA contests attract members from up and down the Texas coast and their families for weekend events, usually running from early Saturday through mid-day Sunday, with a pre- contest event possible on Friday. The TGSA provides demand for lodging, food and other businesses in the venue location, as well as brand exposure among an influential group of consumers. TGSA is a tax exempt non-profit organization as described in Section 501c(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
